I have had 3 high pressure lines leak over the last 5 years, all genuine lines, all installed by mechanics(2 of them by ford)

Is it worth giving the $50 aftermarket versions a go?

or how have people solved what seems to be a common problem?

yea there a stupid design, the nut and o ring can be replaced without replacing the hose, a bit of stuffing around though.

to be honest i would be looking into a enzed custom braided hose, they can make it up without that silly pivot nut...
terroistghia had one made up for his ed, probably overkill but ill near guarantee it will never have a problem again...from memory he said it was around $140
