cheapest best felt derailleur hanger

Gday all, hope your all well
i have a problem
today i broke my Felt derailleur hanger and am searching for the best place to replace it
i live in germany and have searched my two local bike stores to no avail and now trying the net.
i found Derailleurhanger.com and they have what i need for 21.95 or two for 39. but then they say something about the hangers being stronger than the original manufacturers hangers, and that they can take a harder hit, than the originals. does this not mean that i could sustain some more damage to my frame? this is what the hanger was designed to prevent, its a damn expensive frame i dont want to get a new one cause i was too cheap to pay for a felt original hanger. that would not make sense.
thanks in advance for all your help, however small it is.
cheerio

I have found that Original Felt hangers are really soft and prone to misalignment. I would just get the hangers from deraillerhanger.com
