Clutch kit and flywheel replacement problem

I have a 06 eclipse v6 3.8 and I'm having some issues with the replacement
Ok so I just found out about this with a bad experience since I bought a smf flywheel aluminum from fidanza and an oem clutch kit (Beck/Arley) to be more specific and 2 times mess up the slave cylinder, so I need help with an expert or any recommendation, should I buy and dual mass flywheel or an smf aftermarket clutch kit, please help! to fix this situation?

I think you might be confused (or just mispoke). Flywheels come in single or dual mass. Clutches are just friction discs and a pressure plate, there aren't single or dual mass clutches.

That being said...I have a single mass steel flywheel, not the super light one the medium weight option, and its too light for smooth driving. If I had to do it again, I would go with the same strong DISC TYPE clutch (I have a CM fx350) with the OEM flywheel. The OEM flywheel actually is a very good design that Mitsu. put R&D into making it engage smooth and quiet and its balanced as best as can be done to the factory rotating assembly. I read that it was a new design and feature on the 6G75 engine. I ocassionaly stall my car and the immediate speed/rpm drop when shifting in daily driving is tiresome. Really unless you're road racing or a serious dragracer trying to get perfect tire hook, using the factory flywheel and a slightly beefier disc clutch (not a puck type) is the best way to go for a street my experience.
