Which Blue Diode is Best for 3W Power with narrow beam?

I want to build a 3W - 3.5W blue with G8 lens.

I see several 9mm diodes (NDB7A75, NUBM06, NUBM08, etc.) on the DTR site which will run in the 3W range.

Some 9mm diodes have a G-ball lens. I assume the G8 is better so I will need to remove the G-ball to put in the G8. I don't know if this will be an issue.

My preferences:
Divergence: Narrow is better
Blue: Any hue of blue is fine
Reliability: Stouter is better

Any suggestions?
