Default Speedmind vs Sorex inserts

Have you guys ever used speedmind inserts before? If so how do they compare to the SOrex inserts? I heard they are preety good according to some racers that i know locally and internationally.

Is there like a chart for the sorex inserts? There are so many of them available, sometimes i get confused on selecting the right one.

Last time for the nats series we tested some inserts, include Xenon yellow inserts which give us a very good result.

For Sorex inserts, I think the most popular on any track condition is the type C medium.

HPI makes the best inserts and Yokomo makes the best rims,but thats just an opinion,the HPI inserts seem to hold up to extreme temps better than the sorex's,yokomo's and take offs that I have tried. But as everything else in RC to each his own..

in my personal opinion I think the Xenon inserts are the best. sorex inserts come in:
Medium A Thick
Firm A Thick
Medium B Thin
Firm B Thin
Medium C Super Thin
Firm C Super Thin

Out of topic.
I had tested sorex, speedmind n HPI inserts.
All i can say is HPI inserts works better for me. But Sorex and speedmind still come close.
HPI Green and Red inserts are amazing ...

xenon insert are very limited in our hobby shop.. Hpi ?? hhmmm.. needs 3 weeks upon ordering to the hoby shop.. sorex are the inserts always available in our hoby shop.. So I thinks it also depends on the availability of inserts that you like to put in your rims..
