5'Ends/GC-rich mRNA/Rare and Alternative

I am investigating the RACE/5'-end technologies for rare GC-rich mRNA
templates with multiple 5'-ends/promoters. I have used the following kits:
Marathon and SMART RACE kits (Clontech) and Sure-RACE cDNA panels (OriGene
Tech., tissue panels), with limited success to date. I am now
turning to the Version 2.0 5'-RACE kit from Gibco/BRL, as it has been
improved slightly. Also I am
looking into any techniques or kits (kits, not developed yet?) for
which can be useful for rare messages/alternative 5'-ends.
Thanks for any suggestions anyone has found.
