Helpfully, the CT2 isn't aesthetically perfect to my eyes, which helps me justify not spending the $3k on it. Just like how the Micra's lack of preinfusion or flow control is keeping me on the sidelines with my Profitec Go.
I hear you on the deep basket. I don't work in the best light and I find it difficult to get a level bed before tamping. Usually not an issue but certainly an annoyance.
