There is no point just choosing a 'brand' blindly without considering what you want to look at and what your scopes are as well as you eyesight. Some of the best eyepieces I have used are the Takahashi Orthos but their field of view is narrow and their short eye relief eventually made then less suitable for me.
Televue make fine eyepieces but a direct comparison of some TVs and same focal length Tak LEs showed that the LE was able to resolve fainter stars. Pentax XWs are also fine eyepieces and perhaps the best in the 70 degree AFoV range, especially the 3.5mm to 10mm ones.
Perhaps the finest widefield eyepiece I have ever tried is the Nikon HW 17mm but unfortunately it doesn't suit my big scope, due to the field stop placement the inward focus is more than my setup caters for.
Personally I have several brands including Televue, Pentax, Takahashi, Lederman 3D, Nikon and a few miscellaneous oddities. I use the Televue Delos series for my outreach efforts, I use the Tak LE with my refractors especially if binoviewing.......
As for 2" v 1.25", you'll find that most eyepieces of 20mm and shorter are 1.25", low power widefields will be 2". I have converted all my Delos series to 2" using 1.25/2" adapters to make them more or less the same weight as my 2" eyepieces.
