Studiologic sledge 2.0 vs blofeld?

Hi i have been looking for a new synth, and I have narrowed my search down to one of these synths. But I can't figure out if the sledge 2.0 actually has more to offer than the blowed. What do you guys think? The overall sound capabilities are very important to me, but price and interface does also play big role ofc.
:) i would really like to hear some experienced opinions on this.

It doesn't have the analogue filter emulation and only has two parts. On the other hand, it has *knobs*, so...

I've had both, I like the Sledge better. I just can't get over the form factor.

The Sledge also has some weird quirks, like some LFO depth parameters will do nothing from 0-50% then all of a sudden get really deep at 51%. But in a completely unscientific not-side-by-side comparison it seems a bit "tougher" sound-wise, and it's way more fun to play with. I think the FX sound better than those on the Blofeld.

But damn is it ugly! And the connectors on the side is a bit annoying. And it doesn't fit in a lot of cases. And it's yellow. So very yellow.

Yeah, definitely not documented, but some people discovered that if you send it the blofeld SYSEX to change to the PPG filter, it will actually change to the PPG filter.

neat, too bad you can't just use it.

No difference between the way the LFO values work on a Blofeld (I have 4) and a Sledge.
+24 depth is a semitone, +35 is a fifth, +38 is an octave, +42 is two octaves, etc.
They map 1:1, it is not like there is a deadzone for 50% of the travel.
