Trident Maple or Katsura tree (cercidiphyllum japonicum)

Hi- I’m debating between a Trident Maple and a Katsura tree for my front yard. Central New Jersey, now classified as zone 7. There is ample space for either of these trees but not a ginormous tree. Enough sunlight as well. The main consideration is consistent and reliable fall colour. I am able to find both trees in the 2.5” Caliper range. There isn’t enough information on either out there from people who have grown both of these themselves. Trident maple is seen more in bonsai practice and less in actual in-ground plantation. Will appreciate any views and experiences that folks here may have..
