Re: Rank the Akatsuki
For the purpose of this debate the fight between Deidara and Sasuke has to be used as a comparison.

1.It's faster than Sasuke's Chidori
2. It's penetrative power is greater than Sasuke's Chidori
Deidara can also use the clone bunshin technique very effectively if he is pressed by Hidan, making it harder for Hidan to get a sample of his blood. But the situation won't actually get to that as Deidara will just be dropping bombs from the sky, out of range. And yes, Deidara can fly very high.
As for bombs, Sasuke barely dodged them. Can't see Hidan doing much unless someone really wants to fight a case that Hidan > Sasuke in terms of speed....
Hidan's range is absolute. To climb a tree to extend one's range would be basic common sense, something that Deidara would probably pick up and also have the time to move further away from. Hidan's not like Sasuke CM2 where he can propel himself using his wings and take Deidara by surprise, extending his range and taking him down. Nor does Hidan have the speed to dodge C1-C4. In fact, he wont even be able to sense C4 as he has no ocular powers or sensory abilities. And btw, @KidGamer65, using C4 in an argument is just wrong. That's just flattering Hidan's abilities, suggesting that Deidara would even have to go that far to defeat him, even though it was the technique he said was going to be his trump card against itachi.
And for the "Show me manga proof" guys out there, here's a full extension of Hidan's Scythe and Sasuke's Chidori. Interpret it how you will.
