I have owned several Yaesu rigs, including an FT-1ooo. By far, the one that drove me crazy was the FT-857 and the multi function, select till you drop knob. Pretty decent little rig, but a PIA for big hands and old eyes. The FT-991A looks like a substantial improvement over the FT-991, but I agree with you on the Yaesu menu system. All of my dual band mobile rigs are Yaesu, they seem to work better than Icom or Kenwood mobiles, same goes for handhelds. However, I really like the menu systems on my Icom HF rigs, they are simple, and intuitive.
