Same - the 2x5 hybrid is about as big as you want to go for a single pan setup. Can be a pain to clean, and the syrup pan isn't reversible. However, it's a great pan for the price. The craftsmanship is outstanding.

If I had a do-over, I would probably go with a 2 pan, 2x4 setup with reversible front pan. Maybe - a 2x4 2 pan setup is about double the price of a hybrid 2x5, but the 2x4 pan has 10, 7" flues...
