Platesetter or PSWoo3?

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this.  I currently own a 13" heavy kiln/pizza stone that I think would fit in either a spider or PSWoo3 from CGS.  I don't have a platesetter and was thinking of getting one but then thought for the same price, would the PSWoo3 be a better option?  I could use it to raise my cooking surface for direct raised, also do indirect with my 13" stone in the lower portion, place my pizza stone on top for pizza cooks, and even do a small grate in the spider portion of this to do very low direct searing.  I also got into the extender group buy so I don't need the full adjustable rig at this time.  Would you still get the platesetter or just go with the Woo3 and gain some flexibility to do raised indirect?


Any thoughts or am I missing something?

    @BizGreenEgg  ; it only let me like your post once.  But deserves about 10 more.  Everyone in my office is wondering why I just busted out laughing at my desk in a quiet room.
