I haven’t used the PSI quick chuck. How many styles of jaws are available. To me some of the jaws in the “set”do not look too useful to me.
The Nova Infinity… I’m a Nova fan but AFAIK they STILL only have three standard jaws (out of seven). After three years the largest available is about the 50mm. They may never make larger jaws available.
Easy Wood Chuck…. Don’t know the status but purchased by Pony and Pony stopped production but heard they will start back up the chucks…. the clamp division is gone.

I have seven Novas (4 G3’s and 3 SN’s). The G3 will handle all but the very largest jaws (the 100Powergrips for Hollowing and the 130mm bowl jaws).
The G3 should handle anything your lathe can spin.
