The only distinction I have heard people make in terms of "stronger" is between *internal* and *external* Euro bottom brackets. The external ones have larger bearings and are more expensive. Whether the shell is 68 or 73 wide does not matter at all.

I have used a basic Odyssey bmx internal Euro bottom bracket for years, and it has been fine.

i know the bearings are the same but it seems like having them "farther out" on the spindle would be better...ish?
