I'm with you Scott!
Got rid of (actually, gave it away...) an otherwise nice FT-950 for that very reason.
Plus, if I remember right, the menu on that radio would only allow adjustments in 5 watt steps. Couldn't adjust it for the exact drive level "I" wanted for my amp.
Sadly, your memory has failed you on this one.
Sadly, I have moments like that myself. Hi Hi.
Yaesu's FT-950 can be adjusted in 1 Watt steps from 5 to 100 Watts.
At least, that's the way mine works.
Is it possible that you were unaware that Yaesu has provided a front-panel switch (labelled an "C.S" for "custom-switch") that can be dedicated to one of the 118 menu selections?
The simple directions for use are on the manual's pg 37.
So, if power adjustment is important to a user, that adjustment could be available simply by pressing that button.
