I have found the Picco/Ofna hard to keep in tune. Everytime i take it out it needs to retuned.

Been following a few guys with the REDS .12, they have told me they are tight to run in and actually get tighter the more fuel you run through them.

Would suggest the RB as being easiest to tune and most reliable.
