A smidge more than the Grizzly but worthy of consideration is the Lee Valley HSS brad point bits.

In my experience they cut a MUCH cleaner hole than any of the others I have tried and are custom re-ground to brad points from high quality american made drill bits. I have a cheapo set I use for <other> but when I need a clean and accurately sized hole these have become my goto bits.

I’m not sure how much the quality of the cut and hole size matter for your projects though. In practice at 20 cuts per year any of those bits are going to last a really long time. The longer bits like the Grizzly will have more run out than a shorter bit which will wallow the hole out of round a smidge so take that into account as well.
