Why still the SM57?

...'beat'. Years ago I set out to find the 'ultimate 57 killer'. I acquired a ton of different dynamic mics - i5, 441, n/d 308/408/468, RE320, RE27N/D, 635a, RE50, M101, M201, M69N(C) and PR20 just to name a few. I've sold them all and almost always reach for a 57 for the usual sources today....
