It generally is a good idea to have a couple of pickup options while playing live. I use the Underwood, Realist and in a worse case scenerio (as in a loud stage volume) I have a magnetic Pierre Joseph that works great, but makes my acoustic bass sound a bit like an electric upright or a fretless P-Bass
Sometimes I mix and match any two. I do prefer the sound of the Realist, but it also can get lost in the mix easy when the volume goes up.
As one person pointed out here, every bass is different, so trial and error is the only way to tell what will work best for your music.
