Yup have used those. Door sweeps are a pain for me too. Usually they start ripping at the end and working toward the hinge side. They also tend to roll on the door even if you screw it on everywhere. Here is an aluminum version that I have used with decent results.

I prefer the style that is used on new doors but it isn't perfect. I have taken off existing doors and cut them shorter and routed the kerfs in the bottom for the new seal to tap in there.

The best method is he Florida and costal region method. They use he same seal on the floor that is used on the rest of the door which uses a different threshold because they are required to have outward opening doors for wind protection. Bad idea up north in a snow area.
I would have liked out swing doors but they are special order and pricey here. They are more secure than an in swing door contrary to conventional thinking.
