Yellow Top vs Blue Top

The battery thread/debate inspired me to look into upgrading my electrical system. I have been researching and I think I prefer the dual Optima setup but was wondering if anyone had an opinion on the Yellow Top versus the Blue Top. I was told by th esupplier that they are the same price, but the Blue Top is a better battery.

Anyone know anything different.

The blue top is actually a marine battery. It's specs are very close to the yellow with the exception that (according to the published specs) it was slightly lower in either desirable cranking power or, for winching duty, don't remember which.

Blue top also has accessory posts on top rather than on the side...something I've found helpful in organizing the battery box.
