MXR 10-band VS Boss EQ-20

Hi, Hey, Hello, Guten tag, Bonjour

Looking at adding an EQ pedal to my effects loop to help shape my tone & boost during solo's.

Attached to the MXR 10-band & Boss EQ-20 for their high ability to shape my sound.

I'm starting to sway more towards Boss due to it's internal memories which avoid any fiddling (I'll probably need a minimum of three settings).

I play modern metal. I'm buying a used pedal.

Has anybody got any suggestions/preferences towards either of these?

Everybody here seems to love up the mxr. However I agree that the eq20 having memory settings is a huge bonus.

I haven't tried either as the only eq pedal I've had is the behringer one. (It's noisy and horrible so it's been sitting on a shelf for years) So I'm pretty interested in what people have to say on this.
