Default VSTi host and latency

Currently I am using Airwave to host my VST/VSTi plugins, but the lowest latency I can have REAPER set Jack to is 512 samples. If I run 96k it feels pretty tight, but at 48k it begins to feel laggy.

If I'm not using any VSTi plugins, I can run the same as I do with the same hardware in Windows, which is 64 samples and super tight response, but if I try to add a VSTi with anything less than 512 samples, it will lock REAPER up where a reboot is needed to gain control over the hardware again.

Anyway, it just occurred to me that maybe one of the other WINE hosts for VST/VSTi plugins might be more latency friendly than Airwave. Has anybody bench marked the three or so that exist?
