AKG CK91 - Experiences?

Long story short: Wanted to save up for CK93, ordered a used CK91.

I've found TONS of posts and references everywhere for the 93, but the 91 is just hardly ever spoken of. For a typical low budget movie shoot with a boom and controlled interior environment, should the 91 perform similarly to the 93? Do any DVInfo members have experience using the CK91 in video work? They're definitely popular (as is the 93) in instrumental recording, but again, just not a lot of video references. Other than its cardioid vs hypercardiod pattern, the two mics seem virtually the same.

Now if for some reason the 91 is going to be mediocre for boomed vocals, I can still live with that as I purchased the CK91/SE300B combo for less than a new SE300B would cost. Worst case I add a CK93 later and have the CK91 as a backup.

Thanks in advance!
