Good info Peter! Didn't suggest ribbons as such, but fig-8 is indeed the narrowest polar pattern we can get. If you build something that eats up the rear pickup, like that coffin thing, it might be worth considering. Maybe build a totally dead corner in your studio. Another benefit would be that traffic rumble is minimized on a fig-8, since low frequencies are effectively canceled out by the two lobes of opposite polarity.
