Yep. They look cool. But man do they suck outdoors. I too want those nifty screens and footswitches but I really wish all of these devices had optional super bright LEDs for patch/bank names and footswitch indicators. Even better would be paper white LCDs like the Amazon Kindle. I can read with that thing no problem in midday sun on the beach. Normal guitar pedals LEDs suck. That's why I bought the Boss pedal tuner a number of years ago when they added the super bright option. For all the pissing and moaning about the Fractal monochrome screen and simple LED footswitch indicators, I've gigged with them outdoors in direct sunlight and they're pretty usable. I do wonder how the Axe III and the new foot controllers are going to do in sunlight. Cliff is pretty conscientious about making stuff suitable for pro tour use so hopefully outdoor usability was part of the decision process. I had a POD HD500 and it was pretty tough to use in sunlight. I've never gigged with the KPA, Boss GT, or Helix - how do they do in the sunlight?
