Hi, I am stuck between 2 amps. I have found a Marshall 100 watt AVT half stack with footswitch on CL for 550. But guitar center is selling the Line 6 150 watt Spider IV heads manufacture refurb for 199. I am probably going to put this through a PA at band practice but will eventually mic it for gigs. If I got the line 6 I would still have to buy a footswitch (80-100) but it would make my current array of pedals obsolete. So what do you think?

I have the same Marshall halfstack, and it sounds way better than the Line 6. I have used a couple Line 6 amps before and they are good for some things. The Marshall's preamp is driven by a 12AX7 tube and it is powerful! The clean channel is one of the nicest I've heard. If I were you, I'd get the Marshall.
