Default IP6800 70c opinions

Thinking of getting some of these 6800's but have had issues with them puffing in the past with the older IP 50c batteries I had.. I know the 70c is marketing b/s but has anyone that used them got an opinion?? good or bad?

Cheers

I ran the 5.8A 60C ones for about 3/4 of a year and no puffing. I have been using balance charge though, just keeps my paranoid mind in place.

I race IP batteries only and have never had a problem. I did puff one 5600 this year but it was because I ran a modified 4.5 for about 8-10 minutes in practice and didn't have the lipo cut off option turned on, so that's my error. The battery still works fine but it's just a little puffed.

I think IP's are some of the best batteries out there.
