I compared the 706 MKII to the Scout, not the Omni VI+. SSB is my main interest
for mobiling, except when I arrive at my destination I may want to work CW. In
that case, I may rather have the Scout. 

There isn't much difference, if any, between 100 watts and 50 watts output
when it comes to actually working stations. Right now, the Scout is all I need.

Gud lk finding the mobile that suits you.
