help deciding on a new 150, which one?

Thinking of upgrading my yamaha f115 to a 150 (or close to), which one would you go for and has anyone seen any good offers recently, either 2nd hand or new. Any help appreciated

With what? Price? reassuringly expensive like Stella fella?

Personally it just makes me poorer and gives me a worse hangover.

You're Obviously a fan of them but I think the OP might like informed views with some rationale behind it.

Firstly though. OP, what will you use it for? How many hours a season do you do? Is speed torque or noise important to you?

Optimax then! 2.5L V6 2stroke.

4strokes are for fishing/trolling and people who do long distance.
