Personally I have the Barracuda 2 (3000 model). Comes with 4 sets of jaws and works fine. I have only used it a few times though. I mostly turn pens so I don't have much of a need for a chuck. Turned a few bowls with no issue.Probably sell soon, since I am getting more of taste for flatwork.
You can buy more expensive chucks, but I think the Barracuda is the best bang for the buck since you don't have to buy all the jaws seperate and trust me the price adds up quick.
