Firstly, you need to be aware that the 260ah description is somewhat misleading.

They are 260ah @ C100.

In order to compare them to other batteries in terms of ah capacity, you need to look at the C10 and C20 rates which are:

200ah @ C10.
217ah @ C20.

If you can get them for under R5k each, that's a decent price. I would advise against buying used batteries.
A few members have burnt their fingers, and I'm pretty sure my previous batteries were used even though they were sold to me as new.

I was drawn to maintenance free and the the high cycles if I only go for 20% dod.

The trojans work out cheaper but they need to be topped up.

Now I just don't know what to get

Under R5k will be hard to find.

Couldn't agree more there Viceroy, essentially they are 200aH units at C10, I have set my BMV702 to a 200aH battery bank to accommodate this.
