Ah... foot in mouth.  Earlier I said I saw no merit to a splitter... BUT now I eat the words.

If you want a single shot, load a double basket into a spouted PF, pull a double and waste one of them.  I use the term waste because it is.

If someone could pull me a fantastic shot out of a single I'd be more than willing to change my opinion, but typically those same baristas can turn around and pull me a better shot out of a double basket.
