The first coated carrier I've used was a Ceraplate. Definitely opened me up to the idea of a coated carrier. Do you happen to know which type of coating (Ceraplate, NiB, Chrome) is the least abrasive?
My personal opinion you are only gaining ease of cleaning with all three as all three need to be lubed properly and none should be used dry. So you have to ask yourself is NiB worth the extra cash for the nearly insurmountable difference in ease of cleaning over a chrome? That's how I look at it.
