I’ve been testing Kali Forms for a few months now and it works great. It’s easy to set up. My experience is based on the free version.

I use it on a lot of sites. Creation is very intuitive, and it has some cool features in the ProVersion, some others might miss (signature field)Special mention: the solid honeypot option is very good. I never needed a captcha here.
