try the beefsteak big and meaty with less water which makes for a thicker juice gene n ky

Marglobe is the best for juice and fresh eating that i have found. it is an old standard non hybrid variety with full rich flavor. it makes a tomato about 3/4 of the size of a baseball with a firm rich red flesh.

They are a little thick skinned but work are the Mountain Spring or Mountain Pride variety, Fairly meaty tho. Of Course the best for juice and canning according to SWMBO is the Roma. If it's for juice run them thru the processor, let set over night, skim off the water, then bottle.

Most years we raise Jetstar and/or BetterBoy. both are good for salads, cooking or just eatin. We usually have more than we can use and cook them down for sauce to freeze for later. They have more water than a Roma, but we just cook them longer to get the consistency we want. Works out good for us.
