Cam Gears?

Ok, this was more a question of curiosity. There are quite a few choices when it comes to cam gears...anyone have any good or bad stories on a particular brand? Most of the newer gears have the 5 bolt set up which I know is best but what are some other things to look for? If you look at brands such as Fidanza, Kent, Esslinger or UR they all seem the same...same number of bolts, hardened teeth, + or - 6 degrees, etc., etc. Is one really any better than the other?

I currently have the UR gears and am looking at changing them when I install my new FR head and cams so I was just curious on what others thought of the various brands.

All those brands you listed are pretty much top notch. One thing you might want to research is the weight on them. I have an AEM which is not one of your options and it came in at 8oz.
BTW this is an excellent mod if you like messing with your engine, You get to feel your powerband moving as you adjust ex. I set my car at +4 went for a 10min drive and then to -4, Its like a different car.
Good luck on your search-
