Well, yes, you get what you pay for. However it seems that even the top end packs such as Hyperion and TP have also been roached from time to time. So I guess it's how hard they're used.
I can see this happening when using a pack that doesn't have a high enough discharge rate, unless the stated discharge rate is bogus, which just may be the case. Until discharge rates can be independently verified , we don't really know what we're getting.
Incidentally I have had a few Hyperion packs puff on me in the past.
My take is if one is competing, by all means use the best packs available. Otherwise for those who just like to bash around the pond for fun why not use some less expensive packs? As long as they're not stressed to the point of explosion, they should be ideal .
