Default Trakpower Vs Smc Lipo

I'm trying to decide between the Trakpower 4800 and the Smc 4900 saddle packs for a project and I was wondering what your guys' experiences have been with them (or the company/other lipos from the company)?
Thanks Ethan

I love my SMC Saddle Lipo! Fit and finish are top notch!

I've seen a lot of Trakpower bullet females in the battery melt down. I'd go with SMC.imo

I run a trakpower 3200 and have been pleased with it, and I have a bud that runs the smc. We have both been pretty pleased with the results.

I run the TrakPower 4800 in my B44 and I have had no issues with it at all. It has good punch, good run time, and I have had no problems with the bullet connectors or anything. Great battery!

As far as punch/performance compared to the SMC, it is hard to tell because running a 6.5 always has punch
