What is the best Dimarzio pickup for Metal?

I currently own an Ibanez Jem777DY which has PAF Pro's stock and I am looking for something heavy but still universal. Which Dimarzio's do you think I should get?

'Cause they're the f'in best. My opinions, at least. I'd say either Tone Zone or Super Distortion, or the X2N, of course.

Steve's Special is pretty versatile and has kind of a clean scoopy kinda of sound (less mids) so you can scoop mids and chug away forever, but bringin out the mids also let's you explore other music-territory.

That must be a new model. It's not even on DiMarzio's site yet.

Screamin Demon is George Lynch's signature Seymour Duncan pup, not Dimarzio.

Hey, It was an error. Ive posting from my class computer, so I was speeding up and I didn't take notice of my answer.

I was thinking on the "Humbucker from Hell", but I forgot that the topic was "Dimarzio pickups...".So, sorry.

Wathever, I was thinking on the best pickup for metal, not the most powerful pickup. A Tone Zone is good too, but hey, I have a PAF Pro on my guitar and it sounds awesome.!

Tastes are a broad world.

I wasn't trying to be an ass or anything. Sorry if I came off that way.
