1130Leo, IMO....A 13 or 15,shank 3 pt chisel plow. Why..... You didn't elaborate on the type of operation you are running. But here in Central Texas a Chisel plow is the most versatile of implements. Depending on what operation you are doing....Twisted shovels to stir the soil, Points to rip, 14in sweeps for more of a finishing operation, sure-enough when you pull a pipe drag to bust up clods with spike tooth harrows attached to level out too!
IMO if I was to only own 1 piece of tillage equipment it would be a 3pt chisel plow!
We just don't have use for moldboards down here. Some folks do use them to rebuild terraces! Disk and chisel plow are the norm! Hope this helps!

John, I have about 60 acres of tillable land, and grow mostly hay. I have been working with minimal tools and have about 40 acres of alfalfa that I planted with just a 26 foot tripple K, which has left me with a very bumpy 40 acres of hay, need to work the other 20 this year and seed to be able to start ripping up the existing and re-seeding on a reasonable rotation. I now have a packer, and still need a plow and a disc, at least that is what I think I need. My only real reference if from growing up on a dairy farm and what my dad had, of course he sold everything long ago and he's gone so I can't ask him.

For plowing sod and making the smoothest possible seedbed for new sod, I'd use a moldboard plow, followed by some secondary tillage.

The suggestion of a semi-mounted is good.
