I'm looking @ Cabelas AGM batteries, and the difference between the 24 and 27 is 5 amps/9 lbs./$10. Is there any benefit to the 27 that some may have experienced? The extra size/weight isn't an issue.
According to specs, Cabela's AGM 24 and 27 seem nearly identical. The 27 is ~$10 more expensive, ~10# heavier, and 1" longer versus the 24. But the 27 reportedly has only ~½% more cranking amps, only ~½% more cold cranking amps, and only ~1% more reserve capacity.
With other brands, there seems to be more of a difference between 24's and 27's. Thus, specs on Cabela's are difficult to fully believe. If the size, weight, and $'s are not an issue, the 27 might be the safest bet.

Also, Cabela's AGM's appear to be the same as Universal's Adventure Power Marine AGM's:
The Universal's have different terminals than what's shown on the link above (see pics below), and you might be able to find a local dealer as a possible alternative to Cabela's.
