    Dolphin triton, triton plus or z5

    Any feedback would be great.
    I'm interested in the responses to this. I'm debating a triton, triton plus and z5 at the moment. If any of them go on sale, I will pull the trigger.

    I've said it multiple times, I would do the Z5. 3 year warranty is a no brainer, the different scanning is likely mostly marketing hype and I can't imagine the filters really holding that much more. As for the water holes on the bottom, that is nice if you take it out all the time, but 3 year warranty will be important if it breaks.

    Z5 or M5 gets my vote every time too.

    Since I have been a member of this forum, I've never seen it actually above the 1200 price tag, so I would call that more of a marketing ploy than anything else.

    I missed getting the triton at 660 last year as the vendor ran out of supply with warranty.
