Advantages between different sulkys?

I was thinking about getting a sulky for my walk behind (2005 exmark metro 48"), but really don't know what direction to go. There are so many different types, such as: Velke sulky, Velke x2, Jungle Wheels, Proslide, and I'm sure I'm missing some others. But basically you can get 2 wheels, 1 wheel, or no wheels. Are there advantages between them, such as one may be easier when turning, leave better line, cost, etc?

From my reading, it seems like the proslide leaves better lines, but you have to replace the plastic after a while. the one wheel sulky leave a line that some people may not like, and the 2 wheel sulky might be harder to make sharp turns. Am I on the right track?

Just a little bit of information about my yard, it's very flat, a little over 1/2 acre, don't have much landscaping to go around, and maybe one rough spot that gets bumpy when going over.

Thanks for any input and direction on which one may be best for my use.
