I really like Fusion batteries. Their runtime is about forever, and the punch seems to last equally as long. I have an SMC 3300 pack, and that pack rips, too. It's too bad they don't do 3700's, but they do the IB cells, so I guess that makes up for it.

Fusion Batteries

I'm not just saying that because I run for them, after running them for over a year now, I'd never go back to another matcher even if I didn't run for them. The batteries are some of the best matched I've seen and they run strong forever. Up until recently I had some 3300's that I was running since last august as my race packs. They got beat down pretty badly but were solid performers all the time. Best of all, YOU can buy 1.185-1.19+ 3700's...Fusion has them in surplus!

The only answer to this question is for you to get one of each, what ever the cronies herein recommend. Do your own testing, spend your own money and do your own racing.

Then and only then will you be satisfied. You will have your own answer.

Then you will be able to make some post that will help us all out instead of once again rekindling the endless argument, which is better and why.

Further, it is my opinion that if you had read the forum index you would find there is an active topic on this subject!

when some one ask's a question of the sort you will get all sorts of BIASed answers.

I run for FUKYAMA so yes I think they are the best. but as for for you pick a matcher that you like and run those. The choice is yours

I have been running Hurricane Cells since the company started selling cells. I am not sponsored by them, they have been the best preformers period, I have tryed many other matchers and have not had the quality I have had with Hurricane. also in my opinion, they have only gotten better since the Johnsons have taken over the operation. Quick shipping and some of the best prices i have seen...
