So, if you were to go out and get another hollow turning tool, what would it be, and Why? Captured system, changeable bits? Carbide? Monster style system? What?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I have tried the clubs captured hollowing tool 1 time. I did not have a lot of hollowing experience at the time and it seemed to take quite a while. The next time I hollowed (something large) was at the Trent Bosch hands on. His tools seemed to work much better for me, I just felt I had more control. I do however like the look of the Monster style articulated hollower. I think if I were going to purchase or build a captured type hollower it would be a Monster.

I have looked at the monster system and might have to look closer. Seems a bit over complicated for doing small stuff, but if I were to get a bigger lathe it might make sense.
