Anyone tried Dimarzio Rail style pickups?

I am interested in trying one of these for the bridge in my Tele. I plan on using a traditional Tele neck Pup. I am interested specifically in the Chopper, Air Norton T and and Fast Track T. I play in a top 40 cover band so I need something that sound great clean and overdriven. Any opinions?

The chopper is really heavy, its great for metal and heavy rock. If you want more pop sounds I'd recommend something else. I only have experience with the chopper though.

:edit: just saw that your using the norml neck, in that case it might do ok, mine sounds great clean in the middle and neck positions.

A Chopper is fantastic driven - clean not so much. I suggest a Tone Zone T and wire in a coil tap or series/parallel switch to make that thing twang!

Thanks for the suggestions! So if the chopper does not sound that great clean.. Does the Air Norton T or Fast Track sound good clean. I need a good clean and overdrive.

Probably moreso than the Chopper.
