Broken Rear Axle Advice

Finally broke one of my rear axles on a 2007 Sportsman 700. Once i started looking at replacements was over whelmed by price range and would assume quality. I would like to slowly start replacing all of them. Polaris has 3500 miles on it, mainly used now for Duck hunting and around the house. Any words of wisdom or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I pit the Sixity XTA in my 2006 800 3 years ago and had zero axle issues since then. I sold it last week.

Looking at your mods HL DHTs or Rhino 2.0s would work. Looking at your list of axles some are overkill and some aren't worth the effort to install.
