Default New motor advice needed

I'm looking for a new powerful S25 replacement (got some extra x-mas money)

My list of possible motors are..

Wasp 28
Wasp 26
SH28
Mach 26

I've never had any of these and would like some input to help decide. I see that the parts are available at my LHS for both Wasp motors. However, I've heard some really great things about the SH 28. Any info on the Mach 26? Any 1st hand or even 2nd hand input is appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott

For x-mas my friend and I got a wasp .28. I'm currently installing mine and he's almost done with the break in procedure. It's very impressive..........

the SH28 is just sick, tons of low end, ebay has them pretty cheap also. I had the picco 26 same as the wasp and was not very happy with it.
