my mom dont like buying things off it cuz she thinks that we wont get what we bought and someone will have or money.shes paranoid i guess u can say

hm, i got mine of ebay. everythings perfect, the things brand new, and i paid half of what i'd have paid new.

infact, every vehicle my family owns we got off ebay. the place is great.

but if she's still paranoid about it, then the flextones are supposed to be good.

Hey, I've got the randall rg100g3 and my buddy has the line6 flextone. I personally don't like the line6. It sounds too digital for me when distorted. It's cool that he has all the effects built in but that's not for everybody. I really like my randall though. I don't love it but I do quite like it. It's really bassy and gets a little muddy when playing low fast stuff but it sounds awesome playing heavy slow stuff. I'm still trying to find the right settings. I do love the clean tone though. I've never really been impressed with a clean tone. But it really has a great clean channel.

I'll put my vote down for the Randall but I've never tried the XXX and I always hear good things.
