I have the 58mm Breville naked portafilter and want to try a precision basket. The stock basket looks ridgeless yet the portafilter has a retention clip. Any idea whether I want to be ordering a ridgeless (ideal) or ridged basket?

At least with "standard" PF heads, they have springs and ridgeless work very well in a home environment. (In a busy cafe, I wouldn't want to have to spend the time to recover a basket that might pop out.)
