Both are good, although you've got more potential leak points the way that model of Galfer is set up.
I prefer the simplicity of 2 lines going from the master cylinder from a double banjo bolt and then each line to a caliper.

Perhaps it the pop on the initial application of the brakes on the floating rotors. They definitely have a distinctive feel.

Maybe you should start using a torque wrench and some lock-tite instead of gorrila tightening. Maybe some saftey wire too if you are so concerned with the nuts and bolts falling off.
