I agree, I owned mk21's for awhile, and I only used them a handful of times because subcards can be hard to pull a consistent recording with IMO! My best mk21 tapes were moe.@Summer Camp in 2013 FOB/DFC and a stage-lip mk21 source I did!

I traded my minty mk21's basically for a minty pair of mk4's, and I NEVER looked back ;) The mk22's are a different beast though! I usually prefer Noah's mk22 sources too! That said Walt, I WOULDN'T run subcards unless I was in a great sounding venue, or FOB/DFC, or stage-lip and that's about it! I would like to have a pair of subcards though and I'll probably end up getting those Line Audio CM3's if I do ever get another pair of subcards ;)

I picked up Bean's MK21s, and it's true, their application is limited.  But when you have the right venue and placement, they sound great.

I'm a fan of sub-card.  I doubt that I'll ever go to anything more directional than that. They have a better bass response than the more directional cardioid, and far better response than hypers+. And, I feel they are better for diffuse field recording, as a lot of them exhibit a slight hump in the high-mids, and with better bass response.  The high-mids hump is very appealing in the diffuse field environment, due to the breakdown of the higher frequncies in the diffuse field.
