Can you advice from your experience which one is most stiff?

I use this (similar obv.) for my 400VR, and I think it is really great with the arca-swiss built in and nice finish:

I don't think you need to worry about the stiffness, as I think most of these expensive feet are very stiff, and the rest of your support is going to be the major contributor of vibrations.

(I do not know if you are on a $3000 Sachtler or not, but a cheap Gitzo is just not in the same class regarding stability)
