When I was a serious gigging musician, I used to mod the throw of my wah manually and while I like the results, it aways seemed to have to be reset because of eventual mechanical mis-alignment.
I plugged this wah right into a clean amp and it immediately sang. I got a comment a few minutes later from someone who overheard me putting it through it paces with a strat that they thought it was some kind of "talk box." :-)
I was hesitant to pay the almost double cost versus the standard Cry Baby. No buyers remorse. It is worth the price for the flexibility and the lack of additional mechanical failure points.
