I'm deciding between the ZX Racing Silvers and the Fukuyama 1.165-1.169s. The ZXs are cheaper, and that's why i am leaning towards them unless someone can convince me to get the Fukuyamas for $9 more. Anyone compare the two?
BTW, when are the next batches of 1.17s coming?

I would totally check out the packs that Team Hurricane has to offer. I picked up a super sachle of cells that s 2 -6 cell packs for $69.00 and they are awesome, also well your at it pick up some gold brushes these are the best i've ever seen for stock.
Good luck in your chocies and in racing

How about SMC? I noticed they're also cheaper than Fukuyama but with similar specs.

John is right!

I'm the Fukuyama-Team-driver from Holland. I've tried quite a few different until I finally found the Fuku-packs. I found their prices super competitive and their service is great.

I you have any questions about specs, prices and performance do contact me.

Whatever matcher you decide to go with you will be happy. The new GP cells are just awesome. Fukuyama, ZX and Hurricane are all top notch matchers and you will be happy with whoever you choose. I prefer Kinteix Cells but that is just my preference. As long as you go with a reputable matcher you will be fine no matter who you choose.

Definetly avoid the Sanyo 3300s, they are just not even close to the GPs

Later,

They are not matched. You get 18 cells with voltages from 1.145 to 1.16. You can get three matched zx copper packs for $90, with voltages from 1.150-1.159. The pack I got was 1.158's and 1.159's, 407 and 408 runtime.

I have packs of each of Fukuyama, Promatch, and ZX. If you are looking at packs with the same numbers, most of us could not tell the difference (I can't).

ZX is actually the cheapest by about $9 per pack for 1.165-1.169. Fukuyamas are $48.99, ZX $39.99, Kinetix $49.99, Promatch $49.99.

Fukuyama (and most matchers that sponsor) NEVER have any 1.17s in stock. They all go to the drivers. ZX has 1.170-1.175 (sometimes) for $49.99. They are usually out of 1.175-1.179.

Uh oh...The problem is, when I just looked at the ZX website, they are out of stock on all packs until next month. I guess a lot of people know they are less expensive.
