CBN or Diamond aren't "accessories" and should be a part of everyone's sharpening stable. If you ever want to reprofile and thin out your blade, or repair a chip...you cut your time in half using those over the brown stones. It would take A LONG TIME to do either of those things with a Sharpmaker brown stone.
I was really happy with my basic sharpmaker and "only" the brown and white rods, but since I got my CBNs it's clearly an even better system!
On the other hand I personally would have no use for the ultra fine rods (but I am not an "edge junkie" at all)
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
