Mixing AGM and wet cell batteries

A deep cycle battery as a staring batter is not as good as real starting battery.

You will get get more cranking amps from a starting battery than a deep cycle. You really don''t ned a deep ccyle batter for starting. I use deep 2 cycle AGM''s as a house bank but a regular sealed starting battery for starting. I can combine both for an emergency.
