Best high-capacity electric bilge pump

I know this is a perennial subject, but would be interested in a fresh discussion as I need to purchase a new one.

I noticed Shure-flo has a new line. Anyone know anything about them? Any other opinions.

I have five electric bilge pumps on my trimaran, all Rule pumps. Forward and aft bilges of the main hull, and each of the two floats, have their own Rule 3500 pumps with 1 1/2" discharge hoses. I also have a small bilge pump (can't remember capacity) in the engine room bilge, because it eventually discharges aft through the shaft opening. I also have a Whale 25, double-throw manual pump mounted on a plywood base, with 1 1/2" intake and exhaust hoses, in case the electrics are gone, or I need to use it on another boat (that's the only time it gets used). My bilges are normally dusty.
