So, recently I broke my 16" and 18" crash, and now Musiciansfriend has Zildjian ZXT 16" and 18" crashes for only 100$, HOWEVER, my usual cymbal company Saluda has 10% off all cymbals and a free 8" splash, so I could but a 18" crash from them customized to my liking and a free 8" splash for 130$

So I'm kind of stuck, does anyone have any experience with ZXT's? Do they actually sound good(please God better than ZBT)? any suggestions for me?

ZXT cymbals are intermediate cymbals but definitely not pro. I would go with Saluda. You could also check out Dream cymbals. You can get a 16 inch crash for about $100 that sounds good.

No experience on Saluda. I just bought a 14' ZXT CRASH and am not very happy with it. Fortunately it wasn't expensive. I could use it for a hihat top.

ZXT's are B8 sheet bronze cymbals. They are beginner cymbals and are in no way comparable to Saluda cymbals.

Spend the money on a nice set of professional cymbals, you will be happier in the long run.
