Help choosing delay pedal...

Hey everyone...Bout to buy my first standalone delay pedal. But I want something with alot of adjustment and parameter tweaking along with delay types. I love Strymon timelines...But I dont like the price tag. I can only drop about 250$ on one. I was looking at the TC flashback x4 and the Vox delaylab. But something I really like is the ice setting on the timeline. I like delays that have an ambient type feature and also a shimmer type of deal... But I dont know what else is out there and what is worth it...Can anyone point me in a few right directions? Thanks!

The other pedal in the same category as the Timeline is the Eventide TimeFactor. I've seen them go for 300-350 used around where I live.

It doesn't have the 'Ice' setting, but I read that an other Eventide pedal has it. Going down in 'rank' the flashback x4 is the next best from what I've seen. It doesn't have the same effects as a timeline, but you'd have to fool around with it to check out what you can do with it.

Boss DD-20 is another pedal I see people mention when talking about digtal delays. It seems as though you're going to have to do a lot of experimentation to find what you want.

I got a TC Nova delay and it's okay, but a few weeks after I got it TC dropped the Flashback X4 which is even better, so I would definitly go with that.
