I love the design of the Emerson bridges, they give great tone and even volume throughout all strings.
The vintage tone is the holly version, and gives a wonderfully crisp and bright sound to any banjo. I think the Emerson bridges are the best you can get, and I've tried many, many, many, others (I went through a bit of a 'bridge' phase).
This one isn't better than the sweet Power II, it's just different, being brighter.
