    I use the Tremonti Morley. I love it and I have never noticed a delay with it.

    Yep, there's an internal trim-pot. I don't know why it's even there, it should shut-off immediately...

    I've also got a Tremonti. I got mine for free, and I keep it because it's a decent sounding wah, and for the amount of time that I wah (barely), it's sufficient.

    i think the delays are there so that if you bottom out a lot when rocking the peddle, the tone doesn't just cut in and out. A touch of delay can be a handy thing but I wouldn't want a unit that I couldn't adjust it on.

    The Q control and the boost make it super flexible also.
    This is the one to get, IMO. I've never really liked how Morleys sound; not classic enough.

    They always sound more "weh" than "wah" to me.

    For motion activated ones, this one rules. Love mine, sounds like a wah should. However, it's just standard dunlop, for live, it's great, no more leaving wah pedal on by accident.

    It adds needless cost but you can make any way do this by using one of these.

    - G-Lab WWD-1 from Poland is the best I've had so far
    - I tried Dunlop switchless model, didn't like it
    - I owned a Morley Bad-Horsie II and a Morley Tremonti and replaced them with the G-Lab
    - There is also a Mooer model called the Mini-Wah or something (which I haven't tried)

    The G-Lab sounds better when "off" and has more tonal options, works perfectly well for my needs and can be set to be switched on-off like a regular wah too. Contrarily to the Morley switchless wahs, the G-Lab is not spring loaded so it will move just like a Dunlop Cry-Baby because the switch is integrated in the whole footpad and not just movement activated: it's practical for me because you can press down and stay in the bottom registry without worrying it will switch back to "off" like the Morleys.
