Default Has anyone compared Futaba & JR digitals?

Have any of you guys used both JR and Futaba servos and could provide a comparison? I know the Futaba digitals are more expensive, but I am curious about how well they are built, center, any slack in the gear around center and etc.
I have only ever owned JR digitals but now have Futaba gear and would like to hear from those who have tried both.

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

I guess nobody has ever owned both, or just is too shy to comment. Anyone know who has the lowest prices on Futaba digi's?

i think i've heard the people in http://runryder.com saying that futaba made much better digital servos than jr. it's hearsay anyway. you may post the same question over there, people there seem to know more about radio gears.

Thanks pang, I will do just that. Of course, the best test is to buy one and test it myself, but I want to know if it is worth even doing that.
