I almost hate to post this as I get thinking I sound like a broken record.  I love the Meyer sons Whiplash, Backlash, Radar.  They are out of a Cunia daughter that has been a maternal powerhouse.  Aftershock is out of her daughter.  They are just honest solid cattle that work well.  Not huge framed but broody and deep with spring to the rib.  That cow had guts and middle and with that you can make butts and fronts.  The combination would work well on an angus base.  Semen on Backlash was $20 last year and there is also sexed available.  Last I heard they are still trying to get calves from invitro and looking at cloning the old girl.  She is north of 15 now might even be pushing 20.  There is also an Irish Whiskey son out of her that is pretty cool and might make a cow or 2. 

Another bull that has me intrigued is Hairy.  He is out of the WAG Harrietta cow and Hairy Bear I think.  Looks to be a good one.  I think she also has a couple of Meyer sons that are out there.  I think the meyer on the bottom side is a great thought. 

I think the sim angus type cow that is sound and maternal you can then breed to some of the club stuff for the terminal cross.

I know its not a large sample size but I love my Hairy cow.  Shes the dam of the heifer in my New Pictures thread (shes the black brockle face in the background of one of the bottom pics). Milks great and I think she'll work well with a lot of clubby bulls.
