What options are there for low profile tom mics?

Just wondering what are the options for low profile (preferably side address) options there are for tom micing. Lately i've had a couple of drummers who have come in with stupid big drum kits and i've had to compromise sound quality because they can't play their parts with the cymbals moved (personally i think they are WAAAAYYYY too busy as it is!) so what options do i have? I'm using e604s at the moment.

Warren Dent likes his CAD 179 if I'm not mistaken.

You can always try the new e605 "Threat Of Death" series, I hear they really kick a*s if they're struck with a stick!

Beware of the AKG C 418 - they are small but it's only a question of time until they die either from a hit or bad cables. We had 5 in the live rack, only two remain.
