Default SMC, Fukuyama or Pro Match Batteries?

Who in your opinion produces the best matched cells?

- SMS
- Fukuyama
- Pro Match
- Other?

I'm on the Fukuyama band wagon, but neither do I think you can go wrong with any of the three mentioned.

Default Best Matcher

You can not go wrong with any of the above mentioned. But you also forgot Kinetix, ZX, Team Hurricane and I am sure I forgot some others.

Later,

As far as you can be conncerned, they are all batteries, and some people cant notice the difference between brands at all. I have tried a bunch of different brands and basically i just grab some packs of whatever is available to me at the best numbers.

I could go for the one that have the best
volts and price and so far the best price
is ZXracing, but you should get them as
fast as they put them out because they
go realy fast.

It seems that no one wants to blow anyones horn. Well I will. I switches to Fukuyama recently and am very pleased. More punch more runtime, all around more battery, and at a great price also. You will notice the difference.

Promatch all the way. Erika is awesome to work with and they have been matching for about 9 years. Can't say that for most.

Personal choice is Pro Match but I think all 3 produce good batts. Bottom line for me was service and price. Pro Match offers the selection ,the quality, the price and a sweet voice on the other end of the phone when you call !!!.

I personally run both Fuku and SMC/Fantom (SMC and Fantom are the same). I have never had a bad cell from either matcher. The nice thing about Fuku is that you can call them direct and get whatever you want...nice and personal.
I have never run pro-match but have heard nothing but good things from those that have.
