Not bad, let's see if I get a parallel...
Meh. But there's a thick pack in there...hope it's not a decoy...
It's not! A JSY in a blaster is always good news. Can't get any better from here, right?
...not sure, is this good?

And you're wrong. Pinnacle is a lower end product, Zenith is mid-level. When Pinnacle comes out the price point it about $60. What was the original price of Zenith? $110? I got my $60 box greatly discounted and was still sorely disappointed. I'm not a fan of Pinnacle but I've never had a break I was actually disappointed with.
You're comparing apples and oranges.
I also don't know how following wing me around telling me I should be happy with a terrible Zenith hobby break because my retail Pinnacle break was decent does any good. I say Zenith sucks. Not Panini. Zenith. The only good Zenith breaks I've seen had something really nice in the DTT. If the DTT is a did, the box is a did. I can't see how saying I think people should stay away from a product whose breaks all depend solely on one card warrants this.
The product sucks. Panini failed hard on that one. That's all there is to it. What I pulled from a blaster of Pinnacle has zero to do with any of this.

FYI as swjrp10 mentions you are guaranteed a hit. I have always gotten only jerseys from that year's blaster (I bought a case once at a good price) however apparently you can go an auto instead.
