Default Best Copic 72 Marker set?

There are 5 different Copic 72 marker sets. I'd like to invest in just one. Which would you all recommend as the most versatile?

Have you considered buying them individually? They are about the same price as sets at Oozak.
I am not a fan of sets, because you need a light, a medium and dark of each color and mosts sets do not include those.

When I began I bought a light , medium and dark of Red, Blue, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Green, Pink, Brown , grey (C's) and a colorless blender
That is only 28 markers and served me very well for a long time

In time I added blue/green for water, Christmas greens because I had chosen the YG's for foliage , blue jean blues, light browns/ivory for skin and a few other colors

Just a thought

I totally agree! I bought a 72 Ciao marker set to start (can't remember which one) and I had to immediately go out and get the lighter & darker shades so I could blend. I think it is much smarter to get a light, med and dark shade of the colors that you use most. Then, you can build your collection as time goes on. I now have all Copics except for the flourescent ones. Can't find a use for those! LOL.
