I am not an expert on wahs...but I still enjoy my Crybaby 535Q after all these years.
It also depends on your approach.
I have 4 wahs and use them for tone shaping and color. Much like Adam Jones of Tool.
I'm not doing any traditional wacka wacka wah wah stuff with my pedals.
I find that approach and technique to be exhausted now and not applicable in my playing.
For me... a Fulltone Clyde.
I'm still blown away by my Gagan Italia, Derek & the Dominoes version (with sockets for voicing and output resistor).
Nothing touches my 67' Clyde picture wah...
Only thing almost as juicy is my 67' Crybaby.
I’ve owned and still own many of the usual suspects but the Dunlop Petrucci somehow seems to work best for me. Definitely modern but very expressive.
Long time BBE Ben-Wah abuser, love it, never given me a reason to look elsewhere.
I have several circuits that are for singlecoils and some that are for humbuckers. YMMV
Tried a bunch and my Dunlop Cantrell is my keeper.
Very happy with my Teese Wizard Wah, which I don’t see used very much. I like it because it has a very warm, cello-like tone with a lot of low mids and a slight boost.
I love my Teese RMC3 I have a gold limited edition. Tons of tweaking options and they are all great usable settings.
i have 535q for the classic "wacka wacka" and i have petrucci wah for everything else..
I have a Snarling dog's "MOLD SPORE PSYCO-SCUMATIC WAH". It is a wah and a ring modulator, you can use just the wha or just the ring mod or you can use both at the same time.
I've been using a Dime Wah for years.. lots of options and a boost.
I've had a lot of wahs over the years and my favorite is the Chase tone Script.

I heard that Tony Iommi used to use a wah for equalization, and could never understand how when I was playing a Crybaby. Then I used a Thomas Organ Vox which is much more subtle and I finally understood.
My Morley Tremonti power wah served me well for over a decade. For harder rock styles and metal it really has a special voicing and sweep. It's not at all "quacky" and has a huge and very vocal transition from heel-down to toe-down position. Excels at high gain, doesn't sound so good on cleaner tones.
Lately I've been craving something a bit more "classic" sounding. I might try an RMC or a few of the signature Crybaby models.
Yep, I stopped looking after getting my Budda
