Expression Pedal for QS8

Alesis recommends the Roland EV-5 expression pedal. An Alesis customer service rep I spoke to said that they had tried a Yamaha unit, and they found the "response curve was not as smooth" -- so the thing sounded more like a footswitch when used to control volume or mod parameters. My problem with the EV-5 is that it's a flimsy plastic piece of .... well, anyway, I'd like something a little more roadworthy, since I play out a lot.
So: any forum posters have any experience with alternatives to the Roland EV-5 (Yamaha? Bespeco? Others?). Does Roland make an equivalent unit in a tougher case? (If they do, it's not on thier website).
