Tool rest experience

Steve in NC
>I am looking for a shorter tool rest for my PM3520. I have checked out the Best Tools modular system. A couple of questions. What are the positives/negatives for a round tool rest compared to to the flat inclined version. Also, does the fact that it is threaded together compromise rigigity. (Not an issue on a short one but how about on a curved one with a long cantilever.)

As always, I appreciate everyones thoughts.
