PageFlip Firefly or AirTurn Duo 200

I'm in the process of making the transition to digital sheets with an iPad 12.9, 4th gen. and Forscore. I know I'll need a page turner and have been looking at the Firefly and the AirTurn 200. Looking for suggestions/recommendations based on experience as to which way to go. Biggest difference I can see is the internal rechargeable battery in Airturn and the Firefly being USB or AA battery powered.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Neither. Airturn BT200S-2 all the way. Problem with the paddle type pedals is you can't feel them through a shoe. You always have to look down to position your foot, or at least I do, and the feedback is mushy (no offense, Mushi). I guess the 200 DUO would be better since the pedals are farther apart, but I still think it would be tough to manage by feel alone. The model with the buttons is much better, and it's smaller and cheaper. Battery is stellar. I've had mine for 2 years (at least 50 gigs/rehearsals) and still haven't had to recharge. And check out the refurb page to score one for $59.

This is the one I'm talking about:

I can't imagine that being picked up by a mic. Guitarist use the same kinds of pedals all the time. But no, I've never used it in a studio. But they're inaudible in the several live recordings I've done. In any case, it's much quieter than the clank of sax keys and pads. As I recall, my Firefly had the same spring noise as my BT200S. I've never used the 200 DUO, so I can't say if it's any quieter. The BT200S makes no click, if that's what you're thinking, only a faint creak from the spring.
