What about the more uncommon brands? Outside of Tek, B&K, Sencore are a
number of more high end and less expensive scopes. I am sort of "Joe
average" ham - build some, design a little, and want to design more and be
able to troubleshoot deeper.

I don't think I need a 200 MHz all-the-bells-and-whistles scope, but I'm not
sure a 50 MHz is the best choice either - at least based on the information
I received from some of the knowledgeable guys here.

What I have planned is some design, more troubleshooting - deeper trouble

I can most certainly appreciate the guys who have and know how to use a
cutting-edge scope at ultra MHz, but I'm wanting to also upgrade some other
test gear and funds are limited. I'm not talking about cheaping out here,
but judicious use of what money I have to do this with. I don't operate
above 6 meters - and 99% of the time I'm in the 10-40 meter range. To keep
costs as reasonable as possible, why wouldn't something like a 60 MHz of any
respectable manufacturer do 99% of what I would ever need?
