Worth a read through this as well.

As with all things you will get people sticking up for what they believe in but that's what brand loyalty is all about. I have had awesome performance from my Evinrude, including incredible consumption figures that can be independently verified (and almost matched by an Optimax 115 on an identical boat!) and therefore struggle to see beyond E-Tec. Having seen the same fanatical support for Optimax then it is obvious that they also offer an excellent product that you would be pleased with. You pays your money and takes your choice, either way I am sure that you will have a great time on the water
I had the opti 225 on the back of the boat then sold it and now have the E tec 225 so I can speak from experiance the differance is vast would go for the E Tec everytime and twice on Sundays
