Help me choose a new plane

Ok I lost my EF Extra 300 V1. It was the only 3D gas plane that I had for 3 years. I only able to buy ONE replacement plane for flying in the next 5 years or so.... I have narrowed down to the following four planes. Could you help me choose only one plane from the list. Please do not mention about color scheme (I don't care much). Also please do not suggest any planes that is not in the list.

PAU 103" Extra 330LX
EF 104" Extra 300 V2
AJ 105" Laser 230z
SkyWing - 102" ARS 300 V2

Thanks!

I have three PAU planes, Viper, 120cc Edge 540 and 170cc Edge 540, my flying buddy has the 30% Edge 540 and my nephew has the same 120cc Edge I have. In January me and my friend are ordering the Viper for him and I am getting the PAU 330LX. The quality and flight characteristics of PAU planes are great.

I understood as Festivus suggested to get PAU Extra 330 LX since he will also get this plane next.

tvo, the list you made does not have a bad choice on it. If you really like 3D I have read the AJ Laser is a little weak on elevator authority unless you really move the CG back. I have had many, many different planes, after getting my first PAU I have decided to treat them like Matchbox cars and collect the entire set. You may want to compare total cost, plane plus shipping. Last order I did with Herve, he usually ships by LTL truck I did a will call and picked up at the trucking company terminal (only 20 miles from my home) and saved money on shipping. I did how ever order three planes at one time, one was for a friend.

Thank you, Festivus. I will keep it in mind.
