I think both would work. Personally I have used Gyres and I love them. A Gyre xf130/230 would be perfect. I have not used Mp40s, so I cannot speak from personal experience, but I have heard great reviews on them as well. Each is priced very similar. Are you planning on buying new or used?

Just out of curiosity, what do you like about the Vortechs better?

zero heat and wires into the tank, great resell value if needed, tons of flow and options, dead quiet below 80% and linkable between them without extra equipment although I would recommend the reeflink or apex to unlock the most out of it

Mostly 2 things:

No cords in the tank

Better settings - specifically the gyre lacks in preprogrammed variable speed modes.  They pretty much just have constant and pulse. This might be addressed though with the newer controllers.  Mines the original

I have 2 of the 250 gyre and love them. It is just in 3" of water so u really don't see any of the cord. It moves tones of water and the new controller has tons of options. And is super quiet. Never had vortech so can't compare. Sure u can't go wrong with either.

I have never used the Gyre's, I just prefer to avoid as many chords in the water as possible for the clean look.

Vortech's have always worked well for me, and are very easy to clean.

That’s the best feature. The ability to take just the wet side from the tank clean it and throw it back in. I love my mp10 slowly replacing my jebaos with them.
