No threshold residential stall shower pans

My home was flooded in Ian. Lost most of the contents of my home and am now remediating. I guess its time to bite the bullet and modernize my bathrooms. Like the mechanic with a clunker of a car, I am a worn out Plumber with bathrooms that I have no choice but to remodel.1960s Slab on grade Concrete Block construction. Plaster on rock lathe wall coverings are coming out. Cutting the floors and replacing the cast iron with PVC. Also gonna abandon the looped copper water lines as in SW Florida, they are long overdue to fail. Im gonna loop Pex under the floor while its open and run insulated hot and hot recirc. I want to put a curbless stall shower in. I have been looking online and there are so many new systems out there that its difficult to form an opinion. I kinda like the Schluter Kerdi because of the relativly low overall thickness. I used to do my own wet bed tile showers when I was a younger Plumber and I guess I could rally one more time, but it might cripple me. So the question is, who has an opinion on the new systems that are out there as far as quality, cost, availability etc.? I would like some opinions from those who have tried the different stuff out there and have come to a conclusion as to what went best for them and perhaps have settled in on a certain type they are stickking with. Thanks in advance.:unsure:

Last job that I did was an added bathroom; it had {2} w/c's, a shower and a double lavatory sink. I did the underground, 2nd rough and final but I didn't do a shower pan. The tile man did all that {makes my life and job that much easier.}
I roughed-in for the shower on the 1st rough and when it came time for the 2nd rough, I merely left the 2" riser cut down to approx. slab height, set {but didn't solvent weld it in place} the shower drain on top and left it all to the tile man.

He sloped the base I guess with cement. I wasn't there for that. He was raving about how great the system was that he used. I don't remember the name, but he applied a liquid that cured on the walls and the shower base...{Kerdi maybe? I don't know because I am not familiar with that system.}
