Track Question from a Noob

Well, a relative noob to narrow gauge anyhow. Purchased a couple of On30 locos and cars a few years ago, along with some Bachmann EZ Track. Only ran them a few times before getting back into O gauge (had a small layout many years before when my son was small). 

I am now building another level and thought, why not throw the narrow gauge up there? I have read in several places that the Kato Unitrack is more reliable and a better choice, so I purchased the "World's Greatest Hobby" Kato config. I'm underwhelmed, to say the least.

The rails are thinner than the Bachmann, and I can easily flex them side-to-side with my finger. There appears to be slop where the rails are "spiked" down. The joiners are thinner and not as long as Bachmann's, and I already have several areas of power loss after only having the track apart a few times. Never had this problem with the EZ Track. 

So...

Am I missing something? Did I hit all the wrong reviews? I'd like to hear opinions/ advice on what track you use/prefer and why.

Thanks

Steve B
