Grater recommendations?

Looking to update my grater situation in the kitchen. Currently we own a paddle microplane for zesting and fine grating, a very small box grater, and a paddle coarse grater. The latter two are cheap, not sure of the brands, I think purchased at dollar stores. I recently saw the America's Test Kitchen episode about graters and was thinking about buying the Rosle coarse paddle grater (, then getting rid of my small box grater and the crappy paddle one. Even now I don't have much reason for owning both, since I only ever use the coarse side of the box.

Doing some online research though, and it looks like the Rosle may have been discontinued? I can't find it anywhere. They have a different coarse one on some websites, but it doesn't look as nice.

Anyone know anything about this? Also, curious to hear what graters everyone recommends. Box vs. paddle? I think I would like to avoid having the box if possible, just for reasons of space and because the paddle comes in more handy in terms of grating directly over a dish. But it'd have to be a good enough paddle to entirely replace the box, I think. Suggestions / input wanted!
