Default NIcd or NimH

Ok guys I have to know which is better? Right now i have an old Nicd battery that still to this day gives a great punch and lasts...well a decent run time. As for all the Nimh packs my buddies or ones i have, have lost all the punch, speed is decreased alot when using these but runtimes are insane, mind you they are 3300mah and my Nicd 2000mah. So I was juss wondering whats the diffence you have noticed and which is generally better.

Ps. These two types of batteries have been charged with a good charger and are about the same age old.
