Special freewheel for ENO hub?

Do Eno hubs require any sort of special freewheel or is the threading standard?

What would you guys recommend? Shimano or similar? Getting a used Eno hub and don't want to spring for one of their insanely expensive freewheels, even if they are very good.

It should be standard English/ISO threading that should work with any freewheel. I think Scrod is high on the Excess Components FW as very good bang for buck.

I'm running an Excess freewheel right now, not many miles on it, but the quality seems very good so far. Note - I'm not running it on an Eno hub, but I believe the threading is the same.
