Radius Scraper Questions

>I turn mostly bowls (PM3520) and am looking for a heavier radius scraper. I've have been considering the Hamlet ASP2060 and Sorby 3/8" thick, 1 1/2" wide tools and am wondering if the Hamlet worth the extra cost? Any thoughts on other sizes of these tools? Maybe the Sorby inboard and outboard radius scrapers, which can both be purchased for the cost of the single Hamlet tool, would be a better value.
