Modeling amps for bass?
Let me halve it
...hmm... not sure what equipment you're using, but I've owned three different Line 6 amps/basses (which I assume are "modeling" stuff) and they all were PsOS... YMMV and no offense...
Nah...we like you whole.
I enjoyed my Line6 LD150 for rehearsals and small gigs. Small powerful and punchy for its size. Until it suddenly stopped working one day.
What's your rig?
Still love my old Bass Pod Xt!
Wait...does that count?

I use a Fender Studio 40. It's the bomb. Modelling amps are the future.
I use a Roland Cube that has some supposed amp modelling, it's old tech now. I use the flat setting always, I've tried the other settings and you kind of get the vibe of a Bassman or TE but it's "almost but not exactly unlike those amps" if you know what I mean.
I'm sure that the newer units will get a lot closer so if it works for you that's all that matters. These days for me it's an F-1X straight to the desk and IEM for monitoring, sound great and the simplest setup you could imagine.
I have a Peavey VYPYR1 modeling amp that I use on a daily basis. It doesn't have a lot of models for bass (Peavey and Trace Elliot models) but it does fantastic for what I use it for. I think the VYPYR 2 & 3 probably have a lot more modeling capability for bass. As practice amps go, I cant find any faults with it though. Does what I need it to do.
Does that include SansAmp?
I just acquired a Helix and I love the flexibility this is bringing to my rig. There are plenty of amp and cabinet options for bass.
I am using this for the first time in rehearsal soon and can't wait to see how this fits in the mix. I am playing through a Tech21 Powercube stack that I picked up at NAMM earlier this year.
Some are great. Some not so much. Which one are we talking about here?
I sold my kidney to buy a Warwick Streamer…
I use the original line 6 bass pod as part of my pedal board
Just got rid of my Kemper. I was spending a ton of time fiddling to get not quite there. I did like it as a recording preamp for guitar.
I enjoy my Axe FX II. Very convincing and all you need in a box. I'll see if I keep it on the long term, as I only used it a several times live.
Switched to the line 6 Hx stomp early this year. The cons,.....took a good while to get to where I was really happy with my sound. The pros,..... have 3 amp models that sound GREAT at the touch of a button. And, no big heavy amp/cab to lug around anymore. I can be in my car and on the way home 15 minutes after we play our last note.
