Looking for a good tenon saw

I've just received my LN dovetail saw and I'm extremely happy with it. Now I would really like to get a crosscut tenon saw but I don't know what get. I can't go to the store to look at the different ones because I live in the middle of nowhere and have to order online. Usually I work with pine, walnut, birch, and poplar because those are what I can get locally. I would like to just have one good tenon saw for now until I can start building more of a collection. I am looking at a Lynx, a Footprint, and a Two Cherries. A LN is a little out of my price range right now. Please help me become more educated on what I should be looking for in a good all-around tenon saw.

I bought mine from Ebay. There isn't a brand name on it and it appears to be old. The guy that sold it ran a sharpening service and this saw was never redeemed.

I have a veritas dovrtail saw that I like very much. I would think that their Tenon saw would be of the same quality.

My tenon saw is a Lynx. I have no complaints of it either.

Awesome I was considering a Lynx Pax carcass saw. It has the same handle style as my LN dovetail so I think it would be easy to get used to. I just don't know if I it is worth spending over $100 on a saw again. I have heard mixed thoughts on this. I would like to know more about what else is out there.
Here is the lynx I was eying: Lynx Pax 1776 Crosscut
