Re: Chiyo vs Zabuza
I'd say Darui, on the basis of him being:

Not too far behind in Suiton, if at all, as he can create offensive/defensive (it was a standard Wall, right?) techniques of a decent size while at the same time creating a Raiton tech, implying him able to use far more complex ones if he devotes his entire concentration,
And far ahead in Raiton. This is pretty clear. He can enhance his kenjutsu, Suiton and presumably ninja-tools (kunai, shruiken, whatnot) with it, and that seems to be his main usage of the field. Also, Black Lightning Techniques, like the Black Panther, can be used to match or even overpower Zabuza's large-scale Suiton,
Pretty decent with Ranton, which grants him the ability to not HAVE TO overpower or match Zabuza in the field of large-scale Suiton but rather use precision to flow around them. Ranton, possibly, could grant him the ability to shock things through the mist (far from certain, but as it's a mix of water and lightning it seems POSSIBLE) and could concievably grant him other means of dealing with it. My own on-the-spot invention, the Ranton: Lazer Carnival which is just a spiraling Lazer Circus in every direction, would shock Zabuza presumably enough to find him in the mist, or if not offer enough sound to locate him (lightning-water hitting flesh makes a different sound than it not hitting anything). Presumably Darui would know an all-direction Ranton, is what I'm trying to say.
Only real problem is the mist, but using something similar to the (non-canon, but likely) Ranton tech I outlined, or simply using the water in the air to power a large-scale Suiton SHOULD allow him to deal with it without much trouble. Darui seems both too canny and too capable to succumb to the Kirigakure no Jutsu.
So, roughly mid diff, may be both high or low, depending on a number of factors.
Do you agree?
