The Avid V4s is the most comfort-oriented and longest wearing of the three, almost different enough to be in another catagory. The DBS2 and ASX are very similar, with the DBS2 having a slight advantage in dry/wet handling.

Depends on your definition of better.

Not to sound blunt, but please re read my reply, as it explains the differences. Also, there is no Avid DBS2, its AVS DbS2, just to make sure there is no confusion.
