Single-coil-sized humbucker

Hello folks, could do with some advice here.

To cut a long story short I'm looking for a single-coil-sized humbucker to fit in the bridge position of my 6 year-old Squier Strat (Agathis body) - saves me from doing any routing or modifying the pickguard for a normal-sized hum'. I play all sorts of rock.

Obvious choice would be SD Hot Rails, but I have had no experience with single-coil-sized hum's. Which ones would you recommend, and how do they sound?

I'd appreciate any further advice.

I have a Hot Rails in my tele and its awesome. I had a JB Jr in my Strat, it was great too. I'd probably take the Hot Rails instead though.

I've got Hot Rails in my Strat.

It's a nice pickup
