Default braille vs odyssey battery?

Hello all ,
Has any of you had either one of these before , I went to look at both and the odyssey seem as good as the braille ( 17 pound vs 680 odyssey) . I like to save some weight and have no issues when it comes to starting . The price for the odyessey is a bit cheaper , but both seem good , should I go for the odyseey ?

I had a genesis battery that I'm told is exactly the same as some odyssey... It worked great, no cold start issues, sealed, 15lbs...

I use an Odyseey PC680 for the spring/summer/fall. When it gets really cold (less than 20F) I swap it out for the OEM battery for the winter. No problems so far. PC680 weighs about....15lbs?

I use a 51 series optima battery (honda). It's not quite as light as the odyssey, but I'm pretty sure it's cheaper and it's definitely got more cranking

I got a Odyssey PC680. Awesome battery. I can't say the same about the Braille batteries... they seem to die pretty fast and they aren't worth the $$ imo.
