I have always been a fan of boss GT series- just lost hope with the 10 because of the CW.
If the GT sounds natural when running direct to FOH, i will probably own one. I for one am excited to check one out- that will be the true test for me.
I'm in a similar boat. I have always been a fan of the Boss/Roland sound and the GT-series. My first modeler was a Roland GP-100 which I played for about 6 years. I bought the GT-10 and even though I loved the effects and the flexibility, I couldn't get past the CW sound of some of the higher-gain amps. I'm hoping the GT-100 fixes this and that the amp models are as much improved as they keep saying they are.

I've tried and tried to get into the Line 6 stuff but there is something about the tones that I just can't get into. I even had a HD-500 for awhile, and while it was really good, I wasn't as impressed with it as I was hoping. I kept wishing it had different amp models. I wasn't very happy with the majority they decided to include.
