Nova Chucks - Original or Super?

I used to do a good amount of turning, and I'm now getting back into it. The biggest obstable that I had previously, was I turned on a piece of junk Grizzly lathe....I have a Nova DVR arriving this week, and I'm excited to get back into the turning groove with adequate machinery....

On my old lathe, I used the original Nova Chuck. Since I'm doing a major upgrade with turning in general, it might be time to upgrade my chuck as well.

I will be doing plenty of bowls, and look forward to some large diameters, as well....if that aids in the advise you might give.

Please tell me if it's worth it to upgrade to the
Super-Nova. Differences?

Thanks in advance.
