as a Filter Pro user, I'd say the Filter Mod has v. little
in common with the vortex, I wouldn't let go of either.

of course the Vortex only has 2s delay, and no halfspeed/reverse

In fact all 3 units are pretty unique.

...but neither of those 2 Line 6 units has flange/phase/chorus/rotary,
     which theVortex does really well.
...nor do they have the power to twist short loops about .
...nor do they have the possibility to set up a pedal which goes
   from straight sound to complete noise-texture (and back again 
...no evolving textures 

keep them all
