If you looking at other competing products - what is available in the price range that does a similar thing?

I think I'd rather spend $400 more and get a HX Stomp!

That's the thing with this type of product, now that there are so many choices - it's just a matter of looking for the product features you want vs the price you're comfortable with paying

There was a video on YouTube that came out yesterday doing this exact comparison. While I'm not a huge fan of the presenter (Rhett Schull or something), I think his summary of the two was pretty sensible. Different products for different purposes. Personally, I'd rather have the Strymon, even if the prices were equivalent.

I saw that too, and I think you're right - it's a different type of user.

I saw another video of a guy who has a small pedal board based around a Helix stomp, and it was pretty impressive.

The iridium is more like the amp at the end of a chain, which is cool if you have a great pedal board already.
They keep telling me tone is in the fingers, but I have yet to see a "look at my fingers" thread.

How much is this landed in NZ?

I really like the idea of having an "amp" at the end of the chain to do quick global changes with knobs.
