A strong model but we would go with the 7.35 or 9.65LC if you like this one.
At $1,699 you are getting high quality parts and super longevity but this model placed midway between two competing products - the Smooth 7.35 and the Smooth 9.65LC - doesn't add anything extra to stake a claim to uniqueness. This leaves you with two options - save $200 and opt for the 7.35 that promises the same quality, or spend $300 more for the 9.65LC that offers improved features. Not a bad choice but not a great choice either. We would either step down or up in the Smooth lineup.
