Default best onroad battery

Hello all, i am contemplating getting a new battery or two for onroad tc/ and offroad buggy what is a good 2s battery, fairly lightweight and good c/mah rating, along with low ir? also id like them not to swell and stay flat... currently im running fantoms 6500 mah batteries ir are about 2.0 and weight about 315grams three of the 4 are swelled fairly good and well im sure its not good for weight distribution. So what are your opinions for a great battery at a decent price? I am am only interested in hard case, and bullet connects, i can buy 5mm i am running 4mm what are the benefits other than more surface area to connect to for the 5mm connectors vs the 4mm? and is that increased surface area a great improvement?

All related to budget, but I would look at:
Orca
Team EA Motorsports
SMC
Reedy

I currently have the Thunderpower G6 and their 820 charger. And I'm currently looking for better options.

I thinks specs vary too much from One company to the next... All I look for is who actually runs these batteries to get a clue about their Performance: Paul Lemieux, and Marc Rheinard is all you need to know.....

Why not give team zombie lipo a vote?!
Although it is not so popular here. It already gained high rep in Asia.
It is manufacturer itself, not just a "label maker".

I've switched to SMC this year and am pretty happy. Look at their racer packs as there is a pretty big difference between them & the spec packs. Unfortunately it seems the racer packs are bigger and thus heavier.

Their spec packs seem to run/act just like everyone else's stuff.

I agree with Orca.
You can also go for IP / Boomerang / Muchmore 6000 mAh. The four are the same.
