I am currently waiting to pull the trigger on a handful of sharpening items and I'm fairly certain that the diamond plate for the universal stone holder is an out of stock item that will come back; however, my curiosity is for the latte 400 found in the mrknifefanatic sharpening set. Is this an item that I missed my window on, and if so, what are my options for coarse grit stones for the green and white progression that dont need a ton of soaking. So far in leaning towards either the shapton 320 or 500... any thoughts?

I'm a fan of the 320 myself but the 500 is a great stone if you don't need the extra cutting speed of the 320. I have both for different needs. I'm don't know your sharpening skill level but if your relatively green I'd start with the 500.

I have a chosera ceramic 400, which im positive is made by shapton. It does a good job and cuts fast. I just prefer to use my latte as the mud it works up makes for a great finish for a 400.

However the requirements for this category of stone IMO is just slow dishing, fast cutting. You want to set bevels fast and not have to worry about lapping the stone frequently.

I, unlike ADAM, can't stand my Beston 500 as I find it scratchy & grainy. On the other hand, I am in love with the Latte... it's really that good.

JASONB, a professional sharpener & member here, speaks highly of the Naniwa Chosera 400 <--link.

The 400 Chosera is made by Naniwa. Very good 400 grit stone btw.

I think that hes talking about the Bob Kramer "Choceras" he reviewed, which look similar to Shapton glass.

Thanks for letting me know, it's awesome that you guys respond to the forums personally and really take customer service seriously. Thank you, everyone else for the input, I might go flip a coin to see if I pull the trigger now or wait a bit.
