stilwell,

I'm not sure if it sounds better than the real thing, but it does sound good!  Did you use a slide at all, or is it all pitch glide or ?  BTW, how is your new Variax at palm-muting?  If the Variax has a whammy bar, can you do decent dive bombs, or is it closer to a Strat whammy bar?

Sounds amazing!

and the tones sounds just as The Edge tones!

Actually, i had never seen a good cover of this song with another pod...

i'm thinking of buying a Variax, does it worth what you've played for?

And i also thought of buying the POD HD500 too, since the POD X3L doesn't have the same quality effects, especially a good pitch shifter and the octo-verb...

Is it so good as line6 says?

cheers!
