Elinchrom + Phottix or Godox

I'm a long time Elinchrom user and happy with them.
Recently I've been looking for a way to easily combine my ELB500 with speedlights (with MagMod) for events and weddings. The only decent way I found is to go with Phottix speedlights and then use the Odin II transmitter since it can trigger/set both the Eli's as the speedlights.

However, I could also ditch my Eli's and switch over to Godox.
I'm thinking an AD400Pro and a couple of AD200's.
Especially for weddings it seems like a better system.

My only concern is reliability since I read quite a lot of stories of units breaking down after six months and lot's of misfires too.

But I guess the same goes for Phottix which is also a Chinese brand, right?

What would you guys do? Stay with Elinchrom and invest in additional Phottix units or switch over to Godox?
