Elite polearms - mercenary

so, assuming you have an insight in eth elite polearm, which polearm will deliver the best dps? CV is the cheapest/most popular but I've heard somewhere that it has the lowest dps so I'd like to know which polearm is the best to make insight in.

I believe threshers and giant threshers were the top choices, but I don't have the mathmatics to back this statement up.

Cryptic axe has the highest damage (91.5 I think)@ 10 base speed, Giant Thresher has the highest damage (77) @ -10 base speed. There's a merc calculator somewhere around here...

Dont forget about range issues - great poleaxes and giant threshers have the longest reach (5), after them cryptic axe (4), cv (3) and thresher (2). My personal favorite is great poleaxe: 0 wias (only thresher and g thresher are faster), good average damage (3rd place after ca and cv) and 5 range.

I've done some excel calculations on non superior eth polearms and here are the results for insight (perfect roll):
Polearm JabDPS NormalAttDPS
CV: 1374 650
Thresher: 1391 651
CA: 1381 653
GP: 1471 693
Giant Thresher: 1400 656

Great poleaxe offers the best damage by far.
