Expression pedal difference on Helix Floor vs LT

Recommended Posts

I am debating between buying a Helix Floor or a Helix LT.  The scribble strips would be really nice, but it is also one more thing to break.  One of the main reasons I am considering the Helix is so that I can leave my Kemper, Crybaby, and footswitch at home.  

 

How good is the expression pedal on the LT vs the Floor?  Is there a difference in the usability or feel, between the two units, other than the grip tape on the Floor?  Is the Floor pedal significantly more durable than the LT?

 

Thanks for the help.

The floor is a beast designed to be run over by a tank and still do just fine.

 

The LT is well designed and solid, but especially in regards to the pedal, every one seems to agree the pedal on the floor is sturdier and more premium.

 

With all that said, I never advise people to get the floor unless they need all that IO. It's not like the LT isn't sturdy ... it IS. Additionally, both have Line 6's iron clad 2 year warranty. The LT is perfectly giggable and solid.

Thanks for the info, Kilrahi!  I doubt I'll need to extra IO (I'm suck I'll kick myself for passing up the mic input), but the Helix LT would be easier for me to justify as "not wanting anything to happen to my more expensive Kemper".  The expression pedal on the HD500x was perfectly fine, for me, for years.  As long as the LT one is close to that, in functionality and durability, that should work for me.
