Chuck recommendation

I got a Nova DVR XP lathe last week and am looking for a chuck. The Oneway Talon chuck is very well thought of at my local store with people mentioning how it needs a lesser angle dovetail to get a good grip. Any recommendations/opinions?

Solid as a rock, for a wood lathe chuck.

Harrison, at your service!

Definitely the Teknatool Nova range of chucks, my local club has several & I also bought one recently for my lathe. One of the best purchases I ever made.

I got the teknatool Nova2 for my lathe and like it very much. So far I've only turned one finished product on it though...

The Oneway Talon chuck came in the day I asked this so I went ahead and got it. Seems nice so far.

Is there any interchangeability between brands - if I wanted to get cole jaws for example are there additional brands which will fit the Talon?
