Do I need 15N, 19F, and 31P NMR prediction?

"I don’t run enough 15N, 19F, or 31P.
Therefore, I can’t justify purchasing predictors."

Isn’t this exactly why a spectroscopist may need prediction for these types
of experiments? If for example, you run five 31P NMR experiments a
year, does the interpretation of these spectra take much longer than the
average1H NMR spectrum? Where do you go for interpretation help?

By the way, Dr. Gary E. Martin just wrote a best practice document for
acquiring 15N-1H heteronuclear shift correlation data
where he highlights a fantastic application for 15N NMR prediction.
