Ben, where did you source these?

Hensley Battery, near Mile High Stadium (Invesco who?) is the local distributor but Tony at ReCo Battery King at W 7th and Sheridan will sell them for a few $ less. Funky little shop but Tony is as genuine as the day is long - in June! I've been buying batts from him for 10 years or so and he only wants to make the customer happy.
