Which Intelliflo Should I get?

Looking to switch to a variable speed pump in conjunction with adding an IC60 and probably ScreenLogic2.
I've narrowed it down to these three options:
Intelliflo VS 011018
Intelliflo VS 011028 (newer version of 011018?)
Intelliflo VSF 011056

From what I've read here, the variable flow isn't all that useful for most. But the VSF pumps seem to be a little less expensive at most places. Is there a reason NOT to
go with the VSF even if I don't plan to utilize the variable flow function?
Are there any significant differences between the 011018 and the 011028?

Thanks!

The 011018 is the older version. Great pump. the 011028 is the new basic version. I believe you can rotate the control pad.
The 011056 VSF to our knowledge has no down sides. For 99% of the pools, the Flowrate control is not needed.
