If money were no object. I would have one of each type. One plate with 3500-4500 lbs force. One Jumping jack for close tamping. One reversible plate with 7500+ lbs of force with built in compaction guage. That however is not usually the case. So I recommend a good forward plate and use it in 3-4" lifts.
