I can see that some people cant or dont read the title. I know i will get lots of people that will say i use this and they are great. However that isnt what I am asking. People please read what I am asking and respond appropriately.

thanks

Cool

In the essence of the purpose of this thread...

I like ProMatch and have no reason to change. But, if for some reason I had to make a change I would go with EA Motorsports.

Until this week, I was on my own dime too, as you put it. I never thought twice about using anything other than Pro-Match - as much for their customer support as anything else. Yes, the batteries are awesome, but IF there is any problem, customer support is what counts. I like to know the company I am buying from cares about me as a racer, not just as a customer.

I don't guess that answers your question exactly - sorry...

I've tried packs from Peak, Orion, Fukuyama, ZX Racing (no longer in business), Novak, Promatch, and I have a pack from Team High velocity on the way right now. So far my favorite has been Promatch. Good performance and a great value. Good customer service, too.

Fair enough... Someone asked me my own question so here goes. I think if I had to change I might try Novak or Spec point.

Reasons why: Novak I think they might just be onto something.
Spec Point He may one of the only other matchers I would trust. Ther are a few others but he would be my first try.

But thats just me.

If we had open batteries, I would pick Harris RC 3700's, b/c they're winning National titles in just about every class of racing down under. And the owner is a real standup guy who bends over backwards to help out the customer.

Since i just recently switched, i guess i can answer your question. Upon the recommendation of some friends i switched from fusion to promatch recently. While its hard to do a battery comparison without getting into apples to oranges, since i had 3300 fusion and bought 3700 promatch, i have to say i'm very satisfied with promatch and wont be going back. I was able to get the 3700's and very close to the price i would have paid for 3300 fusions. (I'm NOT sponsored by the way) I also had an issue with one of the packs and had a new battery hand delivered to me through someone who is promatch sponsored. Cant beat that service. Not to mention, i told promatch i'd just be happy with them resoldering the joint that came loose, in response i was told that that wasnt good enough for THEM. They went waaay above and beyond what i asked for and expected.

I pay for all my stuff and here is what I've tried and would try next:

Fukuyama GP3300's: not impressed, batteries died off pretty quick in stock racing.

Hurricane GP3300's: Still going strong after 7 months for stock and 19T racing.

Promatch Stickpack GP3300's: For F201 racing, performed well.

Promatch GP3700's: My newest packs, used for MOD and loving them.

Next up to try is Fusion when I need more batteries.

<Edit> - As for why I would try Fusion: Local racer is sponsered by them and is very helpful with answering questions I have. So to help return the favor, I have no problem buying products from his sponsers.

The Birdman batteries I have, have outlasted and out-performed every other pack from any matcher I have used. (alot of them) I currently own 22 3300-3700 packs
