Default Verado pencil coils

Just passing along my experience. Several years ago my Verado 150 with about 250 hrs would not get top rpm but ran fine below about 4500 rpm. After playing with the fuel system to no avail (float switch mod was incorporated) it still behaved the same. After much searching for info I bit the bullet and changed all the pencil coils and that fixed the problem. Recently (with about 350 hrs on the motor) it started doing the same thing. Again, I changed the coils and took the boat out. At first, it bogged down again which disappointed me greatly but didn't stop my fishing. After fishing, and in smoother waters, I opened it up and it ran great. Got top rpm, no bogging. Perhaps the previous bad coil plug was fouled a bit due to not firing and after running awhile cleaned up its act? The new coils are Titans - $37 on Amazon but I see Ritco - $35 on Ebay and Delphi - $22 on Amazon (discovered these after buying the Titans).
