There are several that will give you better wah..
The Crybaby 535Q and the 95Q both blow it away. I have the Bad Horsie 1 and 2, and they are good, but not that good for super high gain settings.
The 95Q is switchless also. I took an extra 535Q and modified it with the on/off of the 95Q, and that is all I will use from now on.

I've got a Bad Horsie 2, for about two months now and I really like it. Before that I used regulary Cry-Baby's (with a little manual tweaking) for about the past 15 years.

I have the VAI-2 and I love it. Not "vintage" but I don't go for that anyhow. I love the touchless feature. I would never use a regular wah with a footswitch so it works well for me.

I'm gonna do my usual trick now of giving two conflicting opinions:

When playing a rock-y, heavy piece, it has a weired way off adding super gain that makes playing fast sound stupidly easy It does give a lot of noise, however, and its impossible to get a really good 'classic' vibe with it... So, although I like it, Im gonna try and pick up a 535Q at somepoint, just so that I have the option...

I've only ever owned a Bad Horsie II. I really like it.
Someone I used to play with has a Cry Baby and says he can leave it 'half ****ed' whereas you can't with a Morley.

I have used the Bad Horsie II in the past, and it is very good.
As mentioned before it isnt very good for a classic sound.
The Crybaby would be a good buy, and its true bypass aswell

I mainly use my Vox V847, just plug it in and get great allround sounds, it does add a little noise, and isnt as good for high gain as the crybaby, but i think it sounds nicer

I use two wahs in my main rig (Bad Horsie I and Crybaby 95Q) and a 535Q in my backup rig. I play hard rock with a dash of funk.

My gut feel... if you can only have one wah pedal, go with a Crybaby. The 95Q and 535Q are both very versatile pedals. They sound great clean, and cut through pretty well when soloing thanks to the volume boosts. The 95Q is switchless, which the 535Q is switched (true bypass) with an additional tone-shaping control.

I slightly prefer the Bad Horsie when playing with tons of distortion (rhythm/solo), but it's unique EQ and big boost sounds really nasty clean. (The Bad Horsie II can be adjusted so it sounds better clean)

The Morley isn't true bypass, but it is buffered.
