Default #'s for the Reedy World Extreme packs

Hey guys just got in my pack of Reedy's. The numbers were kind of low for the price that's listed on tehm as retail which is $128.99. Thank god I didn't pay nearly that much. I got them retested by Lightspeed hobbies on a Competition Electronics matcher to see how the numbers from Reedy vary against what most other matchers use. Both wer discharged at 30 amps and I assume Reedy charged at 5 amps. I told Lightspeed to do the same for me.

Reedy: A/V Sec IR MWH
1.141 357 24 3394
1.140 358 23 3400
1.140 357 24 3391
1.140 358 24 3400
1.140 358 24 3400
1.140 357 24 3391

LightSpeed: 1.135 349 24 3300
1.140 353 24 3352
1.135 354 25 3348
1.143 352 23 3352
1.136 355 25 3360
1.138 351 24 3328

Any opinions? Even with the Lightspeed numbers they are still good packs. But for the price they want? I bought a used pack of Pro-Match from Mike off of this forum for $35 bucks with much better numbers. I bought from Reedy because I thought hey they make great motors and etc and probably sell a lot of batteries but I guess there good ones go to the racers and there "top" of the line cells for regular racers are only as good as mediocre cells from good companines such as Pro-Match and SMC. Well these will be in the for sale section and on ebay. I thought I was going to get the best but apparently not. Sure it might not make a difference considering I've been racing electric for 2 months and only started finishing races 2 weeks ago. It's just the priniciples of the matter.

Battery numbers vary on just about every cycle.
Seen it.

I'm not sure if Reedy still use the Lavco(/Orion/Whatever it was) based system for matching their Batteries, if they do, the numbers will be different from what the TM4 spits out.


Remember you can always shop around, in fact I recommend it. You live in the States and there's no shortage of good hobby shops/manufacturers that will help you find a product at a price you're happy with.

"Recommended retail" is a suggestion only. You'll find anyone that charges that sort of price won't be in business long.
