What's your favorite bridge humbucker for Strats?

I'm about to replace the bridge humbucker in my hardtail, HSS alder body maple neck strat, and I was wondering if anyone has an opinion on a medium output, smooth-sounding PuP.

I'm leaning toward Lollar, since that's what the single coils are, but I'm open to suggestions.

Cheers.

I'm very happy with my Seymour Duncan Alnico 2 pro in my strat. Very smooth & sweet sound overall, but low output. I find that it has just the right ammount of output compared to the kinmans in my middle & neck position... just a tiny tiny bit more output.

TV Jones makes a FilterTron that fits in a standard humbucker-sized hole. It sounds marvelous in a strat bridge IMHO. Way versatile and very responsive to technique. Nice clean, dirty, or fuzzed.

I use a dimarzio PAF Pro.

I've tried the duncan 59, duncan custom, dimarzio super distortion, and JB and Hot rails. My other pickups are dimarzio virtual blues in the neck and virtual vintage 2.1 in the middle. Fairly bright sounding maple neck USA strat.

The paf pro just balances out with the other pickups very nicely and sounds great clean and/or split and doesn't overpower overdriven or distorted tones with extra mids, treble, bass, etc... it's really a great sounding pickup.
