I dont use custom roms for the above reason, as in the past Ive had a rom on the phone for 5 minutes.Also, it takes time to get the phone back into what it was before.
I just normally use a debloated stock rom running a custom kernel, as Ive not seen a better setup than that......lol

Im with you,
Im using my SGS2 on stock unbranded Samsung 4.1.2 XSA ROM, rooted and with all the Samsung (and other) system app bloat removed, Dorimanx kernel installed (undervolted and on extreme battery + my own tweaks) and stablest phone ive ever owned...0.6% battery p/h...
Installed Autostarts to stop unnecessary crap from launching (plan to try Greenify, but doubt it can give the same results)
Installed Switchr for task switching
Thats all the extra core functionaility i need on a daily basis
Unlike my last phone a HTC i havent felt even remotely the urge to go into the wild on a 3rd party ROM and spend countless hours sifting through their support forums each week to resolve things.....when it works, leave it be. Of course if youre one of those kind that wants to pretty things up, which is pretty much what custom ROMs seem to be about these days (do i need PIE, or even HALO...no), and watch your battery drain accordingly, go ahead....i havent seen one yet that makes me think, yeah i really have to flash that....the bulk of it seems to be about getting the highest 4.X version and plastering eye candy on it...its a phone people, a tool....you cant drive it
Sometimes stock (some might say less, but stable) is better than pretty and full of stuff you wont use past the 15 minute "OMG tthats pretty" mark.....and i dont spend a lot of time searching xda......
