Default Fake ProMatch Numbers

Guys;

Shouldn't we ask to have this thread closed, considering the misinformation it portrays?

yes, i agree, i have a promatch battery and it's great. This topic is just for bashing another company, that really hasn't done anything wrong, and shouldn't be b*tched at. Moderaters, this is a plea to have this topic deleted.

nah shouldn't be deleted , should just be locked.
the overwhelming response to 1 single criticism surely has left a neutral viewer like me in no doubt of whether ProMatch is good or not.
too bad i live in a place where these cells aren't available.

Have to agree with everyone, promatch has been in the business for quite some time and has a good reputation in the business, i have been running them exclusively and they're very good.

EXACTLY why we should delete this thread, its smearing the name of a good company!

all good companies have money back guarantess right, if you're not happy, just return them, plain and simple, but to bash them here, and as you pointed out, neutral viewers will have doubts in their mind about the companies rep.

its one thing to criticize, but another to misinform.

You guys also have to remember about #'s, do you realize how much is lost in just the electrical connections alone (i.e. all the solder joints? Plus, aligator clips aren't exactly the most efficient conductors, either.

I have bought batteries from Pro Match since the black 1700 days,I have also owned a turbo matcher of some version or another since then.
That being said you WILL NOT find batteries with any more repeatable numbers.
I recently ordered a couple packs from Fukuama simply because Jeff is so busy that its hard to get specific numbers from him,and since I am currently running mod oval a few seconds of runtime is important .
These are the first packs I have bought from anyone other than Pro Match for almost five years,I only hope they will be as good as The PM batteries that have put me in several A mains and a 2003 region 8 paved oval win.My off the shelf PM packs are as good or better than several of my friends batteries that are on the so called deal. I wont stoop to your level by mentioning names but there are several matchers I wont buy from.
And best part is if your not happy.............
SEND THEM BACK FOR A FULL REFUND
