Default Best NiMH packs?

What would say are the best NiMH 6/7 cell packs for racing? Preferably reasonably priced?

I used pro-match before I went lipo, and If I had to use Nimh again, I'd go right back to them.

I like Team Br00d cells. Reasonably priced and good quality. I've tried other matchers and they don't seem to have the same quality as Team Br00d.

+1 on Pro-Match. Their new wholesale pricing is even better than before

Those new Orion VCS (?) cells are looking good. Any good matchers EP 4600 are great too. If you can still find EP 4200 I had great luck with those.

+ 2 on Pro Match, just bought 7 Platinum packs a few weeks ago... $51.99 each and they come with battery bars and shrink tube. No one can touch them for price and quality. If any other company/matcher wants to challenge that claim... Feel free to do in on R/C Tech.

I've used Pro-Match in the past, they've always been great.

In fact, I was out of r/c for about 4 years and when I picked up Slash's for myself and my son I charged up the Pro-Match packs (that hadn't been used in those 4 years). After a couple cycles through the Slash they run pretty damn good.

I have used Integy for years. They have by far the best pricing and good cells. www.integy.com

You can get some good 4300 GP 6-cell packs for around $30. Can't beat that anywhere!

East Power 4200 and 4600

E-Power - 4500

Pro-match - ENER-G

I think the batteries Jerome mentioned are best for the average club racer. I know he uses them and he goes toe to toe with the best of them. The batteries are reasonably priced and stand up well to use. The East power 4200 were very durable as well.

I've used Interlect and East Power both ok EP more stable

I'm now using the EnerG cells matched by Fantom I got them from their website http://www.fantomracing.com/ and they are brilliant.

The Orion SHO cells are AWESOME! Especially the new 5300s. Lots and lots of power.

You're new at this aren't you?

"Best" and "reasonably priced" shouldn't be used in the same sentence.
