Overwound A3s or A5s for Teles?

So, I'm trying to figure out what kind of tele pickups I want in the future. I currently have a '52 RI and I might want to switch out the pickups for something a little hotter. For moderate rock/alternative tones on mid-gain amps, do you guys prefer A5s (like modern tele pickups) or A3s (like old Broadcaster/Nocasters)?

I like an A3 or A4 in the bridge and an A2 in the neck - but that's just me.

I like a good set of hot A3's for some rock n roll fun. So much so that is what I patterned this 8 string set after for my Junkyard Dog prototype.

Meet in the middle and try the A4. I have the Bare Knuckle Yardbird set in my Tele and those pups sounds WONDERFUL.
