I almost went for the Juggernaut but have decided on putting an Aftermath back in which is what I originally had.

If I still don't like it I will try a Jugg next but I think I will!

Right so Aftermath back in and its reminded me how much I missed it!

Instantly alot better than the Nailbomb, tighter, less hairy and still chunky! Tone pot reconnected as well, which helps tame some of that high end ice-picky-ness. Went down to drop b and its still clear under high gain. Played through 3 different amps, my DSL5, with a tubescreamer as I felt the flubby low end needed tightening up. Also when in anything lower than c I didn't use the deep button switch on the amp as it made it very muddy.

Then my 6505+, which probably sounded the best even though I couldn't turn it up to gig volume. Then a friend's Kemper, it sounded so big and chunky on some of those profiles!!

Also my friend gave me an ESP Ltd (ES-50 I think ts called) which I plan to put some Juggernauts in, that way I can get the sounds from each pickups I like, I think the ESP is a longer scale neck too.
