So, do you want the sales pitch from a factory, or do you want the recomendations from people actually using the battery ? Go ask a factory Trinity driver and gee, don't be suprised when he tells you Trinity batteries are the best. BTW - Once you make your decision, that has become your personal opinion.

Before I bought Pro Match Batteries, I asked around and talked to other drivers. What did I find out ? A 1.18 Pro Match or Fuk will be equal or better than a 1.19 of the other "Major Labels". As for Team Scream, what kind of quantity do they buy ? I don't trust high numbers from smaller companies because they don't get the volume to continually have high number packs. Why do you think you always see sales from Pro Match on lower number packs ? So they can clear out inventory and place their next large order. I buy my packs from Pro Match because their service is great. I'm not sponsored, and pay full pop for my packs. But I want a competitve edge, and have found it since I started using thier batteries earlier this year, and will continue to buy from them in the future.

I missed the original post asking "Why Pro-Match" - but I'll throw in my $.02 --- Customer Service that is beyond compare. Ask anyone that has dealt with Pro-Match, and you'll see that they really do care about their customers, and they will always do the right thing to keep customers happy.

It goes without saying that the batteries are awesome in every respect.

Well I don't know what more to add to what's already been said. I agree that this thread is biased but isn't every thread on here? Everyone here runs PM because of the following reasons, (in my biased opinion,lol)

1) Excellent Quality and performance

2) Customer Service second to none

3) Reputation

4) Honesty- I mean really think about this one, all the matchers out there telling you to deadshort, how many tell you the things that can happen if done wrong. Almost none! Jeff is honest enough to tell you "hey do it if you want, but be aware of the dangers".

5) Jeff Roe- A guy that's honest and known in the industry. He will NOT sell a product he feels is not up to standards and will end up costing his customers more money in the long run. Stand up guy with a hell of a product and rep.

I can keep listing stuff but it would biased wouldn't it? All I can say is take a chance and buy just one pack, you have nothing to lose since they will refund your money if you are not happy. If you base your purchase on "us" giving you a reason then I hate to say that you made a biased choice.
I will not tell you that the other companies (Fuk,SMC,Thunder R/C,Power Push,etc) are bad because they are not. I will tell you that Pro Match is better and I that was my biased opinion way before I became a team driver almost 5 years ago.

Thumbs up

Ordered my batteries today! Can't wait to get them and try them out against the Orion packs that I currently run. Hoping for a big difference to get that little extra I need to catch a few guys that I have been racing with ......besides staying off, or driving around the DOTS Thanks Jeff for your help today. I have heard nothing but good about you and your packs from everyone I talked with, so I thought I would give my first shot at some good packs to PRO MATCH. Will give the report after my first day with them which is hopefully this sunday!
