Default What Jig saw to get?

I could use some help deciding on what jig saw to purchase. I just have a Black and Decker and it's does a pretty poor job.
The shoe won't stay put and I just hate it. With my old eyes it's hard to see.

I don't want to go way overboard on the price because I don't use one often but when I need one I'd like a good one. I'm thinking in
the $150.00 range.

A light and a dust blower would be preferred.

Got any ideas to help me?

Thanks,
Bryan

I also traded up my DeWalt DW313 to a Bosch recently. I was having a problem tracking a straight line in a 45deg cut. The Bosch is a little heavier but very solid. Very happy with it.

Okay all done, I ordered the Bosch JS470E.

I'm sorry Herb, there are only a few cordless tools I'll buy because
I know I'll have to replace them one day when the batteries go bad.

Cordless drill I do have, I have to have that.

Thanks to you all.

I just bought a Festool but it's a ridiculous price so that's out . Kinda neat how the strobe light makes the blade seem as though it's standing still though

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
