The standard Regge poles are considered as inputs for two unitarization methods: eikonal and U-matrix. It is shown that only models with three input pomerons and two input odderons can describe the high-energy data on pp and elastic scattering including the new data from Tevatron and LHC. However, it seems that both the considered models (eikonal and U-matrix) require a further modification (e.g., to explore nonlinear reggeon trajectories and/or nonexponential vertex functions) for a more satisfactory description of the data at 19.0 GeV TeV and GeV2.
