SMC bars all the way. Danny's products are top notch.

From what I've heard the Novak bars are supposed to be great. I'm going to try them next when I get some 3700s, but so far I've used Matrix bars and Deans bars. I wouldn't get Matrix again, but the Deans were good. I've also tried ACER Braid... not a fan, just cause of no physical rigidity. Quite annoying.

Promatch bars, hands down... Low profile and wider to carry more amps. I carry them along with several other matchers and Promatch.

I have tried many different brands: Trinity, SMC, Deans and Orion. By far my favorite is the Orion bones. They have that notched bone shape on the ends where you solder them and it makes them easier to solder because there are more edges for the solder to flow around. I dont know if that makes sense but like I said I have tried several and these just work better.

#1 - yup, promatch, hyperform, and hurricane use the same bars, and they are awesome. burly as he**.

#2 - the orions do make the prettiest pack. as previously mentioned, the solder really flows awesome on these for some reason. not quite as strong as the above.

Plus you need very little solder with the Promatch bars as well.
Not as pretty but ass far as form and function...hands down winner.

I use Deans Probar 3.0. They are not to best looking, but they are simple, and keep the pack inline without having to glue the cells together.

What do you mean? I've been using plastic fuel hosing for some time now
They melt something awful and seem to not give any conductivity
Can't figure it out!
