You wil find it very hard to find good ones as most of the ones for sale are cheap Indian/Chinese copies, epecially the ones with very wide coil spacing.
When I used to trial my VH I found that the springs would collapse and take on a 'set', so I had a pair made by one of the spring specialists to copy the rusty originals I had , and have had no problems ever since .

Expensive but worth it
I recently rode a pre war Norton inter with those barrel springs - very nice ride and not at all choppy.

I have those on my Triumph pre-unit. I am 90kg and they are fine for me.
