Castle HV160 ICE2 or Jet Spin 170/220

I'm trying to determine the best (in terms of reliability and margin of safety) ESC for a 3dhobbyshop Slick 104" setup.

The plane will draw up to 160A on 12s with a Hacker Q80-6L. Lots of people use the Castle HV160 ICE2, but I have heard of some issues, although I haven't been able to get details on the issues.

I would prefer an ESC with a higher maximum amp rating. I am considering the Hacker/Jeti MAS-SPIN-170-O-PRO ($450) or even the 220A version (same weight, $550).

I don't know anything much about Jeti Spin ESCs. Any information on their quality and reliability would be much appreciated.

the 170 and 200 are the same controls (not sure about the 220)
I have had the ICEHV2 Blow up 3 times on a A100-10 so as far As I'm concerned done with castle on large scale.

The 170 Master Hacker pro has been great, however, it does not accelarate as fast as the ice (perhaps thats why it doens't blow up as fast either)

Anyway if you are interested I'll sell you the 170 Master Hacker pro w/Programmer for $355.00

Getting out of large electrics due to lack or charging equipment.

Here is my add
