FDP Forum / Fender Amps: 1985 - Current / Fender Champion 50XL (and 100XL?)

I was thinking about swapping my Katana 50 for a 100 to play with some friends and possibly gig, when I came across the Champion 50XL on an Andertons video. It seems to be Fender's reply to the Katana 50, is a few quid/bucks cheaper and sounds really good on the demo, particularly the clean tones. But there has been no fanfare or big sales push for these. And as yet there is no 100XL. Does anyone have one of these 50's, or know anything about a possible 100? I'm holding off selling the Katana until I can find out if there is going to be a Champion 100XL.

All I can add is I went to a local guitar store to check one out and they sold the three 50s they had within two days. The salesman did say the speaker complements the amp nicely. All I got for now!

Played it vs. the Champion 40 on Friday. No comparision,the 50 is better. Bigger, more open-sounding. The Katana 50 though? THAT is what I bought.
