Flat-bar levers for dual pivot caliper brakes?

So, I want to switch my dropbars for a riser or a flatbar. Why? I switched it out with an iron handlebar just to test the concept and found it to be much more comfortable. It made me 3km/h faster or so, so that is also a pro.
However, I used v-brake levers during this experiment and found out they grip the rims a lot sooner, but they're not nearly as strong as the cheap dropbar levers I own.
So I'm left wondering: what would be a good, inexpensive flatbar lever for use with dual pivot brakes such as pic related? I'm thinking of SRAM BL700, but is there anything that is cheaper and does the same thing, i.e: a "fixie lever"?
