You're going to get 10 different opinions on this. Mine would be Pro Match Racing. Great batteries for a great price.

I have a Reedy 4000 60C. I have run the orginal revtech shorties. The punch and speed are the same. But everyone I know that has a revtech has had it puff. The losi's tend to die off a little towards the end of the pack. I have never run pro-match but when I need another shorty its going to be a tough call. Pro-match or Reedy.

I've never run pro-match lipo but have tried both reedy and thunderpower packs. Have found thunderpower performance to be vastly superior. Don't know if they are the best lipos since I've not tried every batteries on the market.

My High velocity shorties have ran flawless since day 1. I even ran them in a heat of 1/8 buggy cuz my 4s wasnt charged.

I have used Pro-Match, Losi, and Throttle Workx. Performance has been the same with all three but the price is where they are different. The TW battery is less expensive but I have had great customer service with both Pro-Match and Throttle Workx.

Only battery vendor on the market that graphs discharge curves for each pack along with giving you the IR numbers of each cell.
