Curved Tool Rest?

>The only tool rest I have is the stock 12" that came with the lathe.

I've been looking at Oneway's two curved tool rest. One is 11" long with a 5" radius, the other 12" long with a 6" radius. They claim the shorter one is for the interior, although I'm not sure why.

There is also a S-Curve rest, which I'm leaning towards. Again, they claim it is for interior use and I'm not sure why either.

What do you think about these two rest, are they any good? Is there a better rest you would recommend?

TIA!
