Pros

Positive user reviews for the Matrix Infinity Wide share similar sentiments as the narrow version. Several users have both versions of the pickup in multiple guitars because of their positive experiences with the tone and response.

Cons

Some users report the wide version requires better sanding of the saddle since the point of contact is wider. Uneven sanding results in volume mismatches across each string.

Overall

If your guitar has a wider saddle slot, the Matrix Infinity Wide is the model to get.
