Default Which 10.5?

I need a new 10.5 for my TC5. I have narrowed my choices down to: Tekin, Speedpassion, Hacker and Novak. Tell me why I should go with your pick. I will be using a LRP Sphere TC esc.

i've run the Hacker and it lacks some bottom end punch (even with retarded timing and highest profile on TC Spec ESC) compared to the LRPs and Novaks...
LRP seems to have the better balance of power/rpm when compared to the Novak, but from my experience at the local track the Novaks rip considerably harder than the LRPs (despite LRPs and Hackers/Losi winning races, but thats just the driver! :P)

Out of interest, how did you gear the Hacker compared with the LRP's or Novaks.

Thanks

How do you guys rate the speed passion compared to the Novak? It looks like Novak is leading the pack.
