Birds and the Telewaves are not SWR bridges, they're directional wattmeters.

With that said, I'm not fan of the Telewaves.  I have two of the 44A's, but 
I rarely use them.  The switch is a little flakey on one of the ones I have, 
even though it's only maybe 5 years old.  The other one is a little older, 
and it has someting intermittant internally that results in it giving 
different readings on sucessive key-ups.

I have several different flavors of Birds including 43's, 43P's, the digital 
4391A, etc.  Without fail, I always find myself grabbing one of the 43's 
(call me a stubborn OF, but they just work).

The digital 4391 is nice, but as you might imagine, the battery is always 
dead at the most inopportune time.  I have a Bird 4410 at one of my clients' 
locations, and like it for what little time I've used it.

I have Coaxial Dynamics wattmeters of various types at broadcast sites, but 
generally speaking, if I'm the one doing the buying, I buy Bird.
