    Hunter ranged weapon DPS question - Zod's or Wrathful Gladiator?

    Last night I was playing around on my hunter trying to scrap as much dps out of him as I could and I stumbled across something that may be a dps increase but I'm not 100% sure.

    After patch 4.01 (and possibly due to the stats conversions on gear) it looks to me like the Wrathful Gladiator's Longbow would be a better choice than Zod's Repeating Longbow. I did a quick check on femaledwarf.com and it's saying that it's a 110dps increase for me if I swapped Zod's for the pvp bow. Kind of makes sense because the pvp bow provides:
    +17 Agi
    +26 Sta
    +34 Resilience (0.36%)
    +34 Crit (0.74%)
    +130 Ranged Min Damage

    Seems a bit wierd though as I'm not sure that blizzard would have intended a pvp weapon to be better than its pve counterpart?

    Before I drop the 2550 honor points on the bow, I'm wondering if anyone has had the chance to test this theory?

    Here are the stats:
