Hi Buddy

I'd be busy buying an Etec if I was after a 90!

150's however that's different.

Ah, Mr Wave, so nice to see you here.
Etec is my first choice but money - well that's another matter.
The Optis are going for 4,300 whereas the best I can get on an Etec is 5,700. Thats a bit of a price difference.
Mr Nasher and others seem to think I'm going to find it tough to get an Etec for anything like the Opti's price - unless you or someone else knows better.

What's the key differences in your opinion ?

I only know three people runnng 3 pot Opti's and they have all been troublesome so I guess the key difference is reliability in my opinion.

I however don't think you can beat a two stroke Yammie providing on that setup

Superb engines, the last one I had was an 86 version and still ran like a sewing machine. Would be my choice if its still available.
