What gives you a charge?

After reading Maine, and so many others as well as talking with innumerable cruisers I see there’s no consensus on batteries. It’s almost as bad as anchors but a bit less
So as I look to a load test and a decision on my 6 year old agms was wondering what you choose and why. Please add how the boat is used.
See 6v golf cart, Chinese flooded, and the like on one side and Lifeline AGMs, Fireflys in the middle and then the ultimate of LFP after extensive preparation before hand. At all levels everyone says they’re happy campers while cruising. Actually more interested in the downside of this decision as horror stories tend to be more informative.
