    Default swordfish 220X+

    Looking for any opinions on a swordfish 220X+. I'm upgrading the ESCs in a cheetah twin and cant decide between the new ZTW 200 or the swordfish 220X+. Data logging is not a factor in my decision. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I too am curious to know what the better built esc is between these two.

    I just received the new ZTW 200s. I'll run them the first weekend in December. I'm assuming they will be an improvement over the SK 180s I'm runnimg now. I've heard the SW 220's have issues so I went with the ZTW 200s.

    Downside of the ZTW is that is goes forward and reverse and that cannot be turned off, You have to be careful about not accidently hitting reverse. Swordfish 220esc's always have issues...eventually!

    Thanks for the tip. I should be able to turn off the reverse on my radio. The 200amp ZTWs are installed but haven't run them yet. I'll have an opinion once I've run a couple packs through them.
