Default Who's got the best ball cups?

Not 100% happy with the cups on my mi4, they seem to bind a bit, anyone make a better one, the tamiya ones in my spare box are better, but not heaps.

If you have a schui cup binding on the proper ball, there's something wrong. The ball gripppas are top notch. Strong and free. Try a new ball cup on a new ball stud. I've never needed to prep any schumacher ball cup to get it free.

Personally, I like the Xray hex balls and cups. Unscrew them with an allen wrench instead of prying them off the cup.

I really like the TOP / Xray ball ends, but if you're sticking with ball cups, you can't beat the "ball grippas". That was always the first upgrade to any TC3 that I bought.
