I'm running Fukuyama cells. I havent tried other matched cells, but Fuku performs well and they have great service and reasonably prices. So I'll buy more, when I have the money.

Another interesting alternative, is www.zx-racing.com - good prices.

If you can wait a few days there will be some special deals at Fukuyama. Dan just posted this on the Fukuyama thread.
For maintanence of the packs just follow what is stated on their site.

MrRolla

most of the matchers offer the same product, processed similarly (there aren't 350 different ways to zap a cell), and for similar prices.

The difference really is on service, and the kindness of the people you're dealing with via phone or email. You also want ot stick to the biggest of the smallest matchers (ProMatch, SMC and the likes), because they're the only ones to really have the volume to put together really "matched" packs. Stay away from huge brand names like reedy, EPIC or Trinity, they're just overpriced (gotta pay for all these ads in the mags)

Personnally, I've always been super happy with ProMatch's service. Their product are just about as good as anyone else's, but they're always ready to walk the extra mile to help. And they kindly ship overseas. When I bought some 3000HV's from them two years ago, they even remembered me that I had a 10$ credit with them from 1999... Who else would do that?

They've got a thread on rctech. Go check'em out.

Later,
Paul

If you can get some try some powerpush packs they are some of the best batteries I have ever run. I would also recommend fantom killer voltz or smc but they all deliver around the same performance in the end. It's just comes down to your preference of brand.

See? Told you so... they're all the same GP3300 cells, zapped and matched...

Pick up any of these matchers and you'll be fine. Remember: too big a brand = too small a brand = NOT GOOD
