I need to replace all my batteries, I have had them for 3 years, I fish offshore, inshore and fresh water. This will be for my main battery (225 Mercury opti) plus I need to replace my trolling motor battery, and my accessories battery. Does anyone have experience with AdvancedGlass Matt.

I run Optima blue top agms on the tmotor and Sears Diehard 1150 cca agm on the crank and accessories (low hds units with lss boxes and a 225 Opti).

Been going strong for over 3 years.

I'm running (3) blue top Optimas for my trolling motor, 4 years old this month and still doing fine. Just installed a Deka Intimidator AGM dual purpose battery for cranking and accessories. Did some reading on the Deka and it got great reviews. Will be putting it to the test next week at Purtis Creek.

Thanks for the info guys, also anyone have experience with the "Energizer" brand at Sam's Wholesale? they sell both Optima and Energizer... they have the AGM in the Energizer brand.. I thought about giving those a try. My batteries are still good but I try not to push them past 3 years since being in salt water offshore I like to have the best batteries and not to trust an old battery

I had never heard of them so I looked them up. They seem to only provide cranking batteries and not deep cycle unless I missed something.
