Default Your favorite boundary microphone?

Hi

I'm not going to lie, I'm not a drummer, but people on guitar forums don't even know what a boundary mic is, so please, from a drummer's perspective, share with me your experiences on boundary mics.
I've seen a few videos and on at least one occasion I was impressed with the deep and big sound of a BM (also depends on the kit, I know).
The videos I've seen were all about kick drums, so for you, as a kicking drummer, what's the best boundary mic?
I'm looking at the Sennheiser e901 and the Shure Beta 91a. Anything between those two?
Or do you like any other models?

Because BMs are condensors, are there any issues with acoustics? I'm very finicky about bad reverb coming into condensors. Not to mention bleed...
