Good idea about testing the tubas that are of interest. One word of advise; when you decide, make sure that you will receive the exact tuba that you tried and liked. Remember, any brand of tuba is variable. Write the serial number down and get it in writing that this is the specific tuba that will be yours. Most businesses are reputable and will not play nasty games, but mistakes can be made. Also, look through the past postings to see which businesses have good reputations (people on this BBS are not usually shy about posting opinions, this is most often good).
Remember, the tuba that you ultimatly pick will be your musical voice. It can be with you for many years (my Alexander and I will have 25 years together in Y2K!), choose wisely!
best of luck, and my sincere wishes for your future success!
