So i have a Mesa Stilleto I am becoming very displeased with. I running it through a Peavey Valveking 4x12.

Recently, my co-guitarist left his Line 6 Spider III combo at my house after a rehearsal and I began playing with it. I loved it.

I need a better distortion than im getting out of my Mesa and im considering selling it along with the cab and buying the half-stack version of the spider III.

My question is: is this a downgrade completely? or only in the opinion of others? Is this a bad idea in the long run?

downgrade!

Troll?

Yes that is a MAJOR downgrade and probably the worst option you can go with. If you liked it then at least get a Line 6 Tube Head or Peavey Vypyr Tube Head or somethin dude. The spiders are good practice amps but at high volumes they are shit.

downgrade,

Everyone will say downgrade, your an 06 guy, you should know like 70% (or more) of UG hate L6 SPIII's

but thats justmy 2c

but yeh you could get alot better stuff than a digital line6 Spider 3 ,

if you want a line 6 tho try a Vetta

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

Spider distortion = good?

Mind = blown.

And if you really like modelers, the Line 6 Vetta is a modeling amp, only 69904334803984x better. I would vote for that.
UG POKER!

TL;DR: Saw a girl at Wal-Mart, she started feeling me up, I jizzed in my pants.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

distortion pedal?
this way you can get exactly the disortion you like without doing that horrible swap you were thinking of, no offense

-1 to anyone who thinks this is for real.

Half the threads in this silly forum bash Line6 Spider IIIs so anyone who's been here since 2006 would certainly know that!

RIP Les Paul, I bet he's forming a kick-ass band up there to play The Great Gig in the Sky. Maybe we'll all have to use a Stairway to Heaven to go see them play. You know I'm funny.

if you want advice on how to get your gear to sound better and get suggestions for something new, start a new thread. preferably dont mention buying the spider so we dont have 100 "spid3rs suck!" posts. closing this since most of the posts are just that.
