I sold a great SV105 (LZOS Optics) and moved to the Tak 120. There is an observable and nice performance boost with the 120 but the other nice thing is that the Tak, although not as compact as my SV105, weighs about the same and rides just as well on my CG5 so there was no portability penalty. Who knows, there might be a 140 coming but that would not have the portability advantage that the 120 enjoys. The 120 acts like a 130 but with the portability of the 102 - kind of a “Goldilocks”size refractor.
So far I’ve been very impressed with the views of Mars through the Tak.
You can see my Tak in the thread “post a picture of your refractor” - page 23
