Trojan's pricing has become outrageous. My buddy Mike is a GC manager in MA and they switched away from Trojan 4-5 years ago and have never looked back. It has saved them thousands over the last five years and they do spread sheet the costs of batteries. They have used both US Battery and Crown but currently use US Battery.
Trojan has not seen a 90% share of the GC market in a long time.
Even Yamaha dumped Trojan in favor of US Battery:
"Yamaha will now use US Battery Co. as their OEM battery supplier. US

DEKA or TROJAN golf cart batteries OPINONS?
I need to replace my bank of 6 golf cart batteries and currently have Trojans. The local supplier in the Caribbean has DEKA equivelents.
Are DEKAs as good as TROJANS ? The price is about the same.
I can get TROJANS but not until I get to Antigua.
