I prefer 3, closer to 2 than 4.

2, but I can see how 3 could work out better.

I need 3 and 4 to show real strong onesuiters, so way too weak for anything above 2 . Partner will raise me with 2,5 tricks.
Kind Regards

3

A slight overbid, but 2 is too likely to miss game.
3 tells partner that he need not worry about fit, 2 does not.

a decent number of "borrowed" 7 count in partners hand give
us a great chance at game. Our suit quality is very good and p
will not want to raise us with hands like x xxx KJxxx Kxxx
so 2s is too weak. 3S should be saved for very strong hands that
are primarily 1 suited (making slam searches easier) and use x
for most other hands. That means at these colors we should
probably bid

4s


and have the anti acid ready if we get x.

I tried 3 for the reasons given by Rainer. Partner boosted to 4, and I got a heart lead into:

8x ATx K98xx xxx

I won on the board & played a spade to the T-K-A, and lefty continued hearts instead of leading from his KJx of clubs, allowing me to unblock my AQ of diamonds, cross to the 8, and pitch a club on the diamond. Lucky.
