Talon vs Stronghold

>This must be like the "which oil is best" thread on the motorcycle forums but I'm about ready to pull the trigger on a good chuck. I sold my first bottle stoppers and have some uncommitted cash!
I have a Nova 3000 and am leaning toward the Stronghold because well... bigger is better right? Actually I plan to turn the largest bowls and hollowforms the lathe will accommodate and for the size wood I can get my hands on.

The less bulky Talon is appealling because it seems it would be easier to work around but I don't know if it can handle 15 or 16 inch bowls, etc.?

It seems there is an Ebay seller who offers both at a good price including the spindle adapter.

Any advice?
Tom
