I use a little Nova for my smaller pieces.. but have a Powermatic for hollow forms and really big stuff. Are you looking to do spindle work or are you a “bowl” guy. I’d recommend that weight matters. The stability of the lathe is a huge benefit to your success. “Middy” lathes.. I’d refer back to Wildwood’s comment , solid products, all of them. Best of luck!
