I have PRS pickups in my PRSi and Throbaks in my Collings. Throbaks are amazing pickups, probably my favorite after market pickup manufacturer. But, I don't believe they're making better pickups than PRS' 57/08s, 59/09s or DGTs, for example. I think, if PRS sells something that meets your needs, I'd stick with PRS. Otherwise, I'm sure the Throbak pickups will sound great.
