Opinions and/or experiences with Odyssey batteries?

I am looking at replacing my current, perfectly good battery in my WK with a better deep cycle AGM battery for the purpose of running more equipment in the future and less issues with the battery dying if I drain it. Keep the old one as a backup in my garage. While at my local AutoZone, I noticed that they have a brand called Odyssey but I don't know anything about them. I have used AutoZones Duralast line for a long time and while their name is purely ironic, their warranty is usually good enough to get me free replacements when they die.

Anyway, this is the battery I was looking at getting for my WK.

Does anybody have any experience with these or have any other recommendations within the same price range or lower?

No experience with that brand, but I've used a Bosch AGM for a while now that's survived a few totally dead situations (during COVID lockdown) after being revived with a Noco Genius, and I've had an Optima DH7 on order for a couple of months (gonna relegate the Bosch to second battery status).

Odyssey batteries are high quality, and made in the USA. Didn't know AZ started carrying them, that's good. After Sears stopped with the die hard platinum (made by Odyssey) they were hard to find locally

Yeah. Big reason I am looking into them is because they are made in the USA. I was going to buy an Optima or two but recently found out that all of their manufacturing was moved to Mexico and now they are having quality issues.
