Holy schitt dude, do you haul all that stuff to a gig? :lol:

Okay since this is kinda related I will ask here instead of starting a new thread. It appears I will be coming out of retirement and playing again. I still have my RP500 and it served me well in the past. I still have a regular pedal board too. I was thinking of updating to a newer processor but want to keep the budget to $300-$350. I have come down to the Line6 HD500X or the Boss GT100. I will use this mainly as a processor plugged into a conventional guitar amp and not through the P.A. Any thoughts on which sounds better or easier to use? Am I overlooking a unit that would be comparable in used price and function? Right now I am leaning towards the Boss GT100 but have an open mind to the Line6 or other suggestions. Any help is appreciated.

Instill use my Pod X3 and still love it.  It has a fairly steep learning curve but a lot of control.  The preset sounds were janky, but you get nearly anything out of it, if you spend some time. 

This may or may not apply to the 500x.

I have a friend that uses a X3 and he makes it sound good. I ended up buying a new NuX MG-30 instead of a used HD500X or a GT-100. I ordered a used HD500X from GC and when I received it the LCD display was so dim I could barely read it. I had to send it back. I figured it was best to avoid any hassles and just buy a new unit instead of used. A local shop had the NuX MG-30 so I opted for it.

Yeah, that was a good call.  The depth of control it affords is really nice, but a bit of a hassle to navigate.
