We've always used Interstate Deep Cycle Marine bats, they always seem to work well.

If you want the BEST and do not care about price the Stinger batteries are by far the best. Make Optima's look like toys. They also last a LOT longer as they have a much better plate design. I had one in my F-250 with a V-8 that was the size of a motor cycle battery and it worked great for years.

For the money, hard to beat Interstate Marine. I easily get 4 seasons out of them. Only change them out at the end of 4th season as cheap insurance. Never had one fail.

Optima blue tops for me. Why have a battery full of electrolyte sloshing around?
