2 prong Spur Centers

>Hello All,

Hope everybody’s in the Xmas spirit!.

I have never used a 2 prong spur center, it seems a lot of better turners are using them. Thinking about getting a new “chuck spur center” from Bestwoods and thinking about getting the 2 prong version, heard it was better for uneven ends and shifting the wood axis around. Was worried that a large piece would want to lean to the "spurless" side of the center if not driven deep enough, because of no support. Do many of you use them? If so any disadvantages? Your thoughts are appreciated.

Merry Xmas and NO turning accidents for the new year!

Bud
