That’s the competition! It’s a bit overwhelming. We’ll start pitting them up against eachother soon. We didn’t include all brands in this competition, only those we thought we most relevant and worthy of the competition. We may add more models or brands as the tournament rolls on.

We will compare:

  • Price
  • Quality of components and overall design
  • Feel (solidness, smoothness, noise)
  • Durability
  • Features and Functionality
  • Warranty
  • And anything else we feel is relevant
