You need multiples. For example
Best analog delay
Best digital delay
Best "super delay"

That kind of thing.

I'm gonna have to agree with this...would the Flashback ever trump the Timeline in terms of being "best"? Probably not...they're completely different types of delay pedals. Comparing the Flashback against the DD5/DD7 and similar pedals would make more sense/be more helpful...

I don't necessarily think you have to separate categories since there's 10 options - you could I guess but yeah, I don't think it's necessary. Although maybe a dedicated "super delay" poll/thread might be a good idea. Although I think it's pretty obvious the Timeline will most likely kill any other option. Lol.
The timeline kills the aqua puss. But the aqua puss is the best pedal for slapback imo. Some may just use delay for slapback and vote aqua puss. I would vote timeline because it is the better pedal, but I still love and own an ap. It is a difficult.

So if it was a thread on the compact delay pedals with or without looping?

No other contenders? like never see the Carbon Copy up against the Flashback?

It's not easy to figure a decent poll out.

Oops - sry I changed my mind on this thought so I deleted it. Lol.

well flashback is digital, carbon copy is analog.

Looping is a whole nother category.

So the Flashback wouldn't make your list?

How about the world famous Line6 DL4??

Well, putting aside real tape delays both vintage and modern...the best analog delay "pedal" (and I use that loosely 'cause the thing is huge) is the older blue SIB Echodrive. Can't get 'em anymore though. Among contemporary delay pedals the best ones I've heard from a pure tone perspective are the Wamplers-- both the faux Analog and the faux Tape Delay -- they might night have all the bells and whistles of a modern digital delay, but they just sound freaking great.

I thought we were talking about delays...not loopers. Yeah they're a bonus on some, but I don't think they make a big enough difference to put them in a separate category. Again, I just think in a poll like this, from what I've seen before, the Timeline will just trump everything and nothing is gained out of the poll. I might be wrong though!

Just my take, but regardless of what you put in the poll, you'll get a dozen "should have included _____" replies and the end result of the poll will be a "which do you own" result, not necessarily which is best.

I'd love to see a shootout between:

DD2
DD3
DD5
DD6
DD7
DL-8
Echo Park
Digidelay
DE-7
Flashback
any other signal-boss-size-and-shape delay others can come up with...

Hardwire DL8 is a worthy contender perhaps

but in a certain catagory right?

It has to be segregated I think

I don't know; it's pretty new and the only time I've seen a picture of them is in the emporium.
In a way, it seems the poll would point to the buying trend, it would
NEVER be able to tell you what is better,,

Just what is popular and even trendy. In a couple years ALL these pedals will be replaced by promises of even better GAS.
