I'd do it, but thats just me. I know where you're coming from though. Do you think you could get more amp then what you have now or be happier with something else? Those are really the questions you should ask yourself.
I heard a Powerball live, it sounded very fizzy to me... Could've been the way it was dialed, and I have seen that guitar world review, yea, totally made it sound awsome, but still a lot of highs, and can seem to get compressed, the usual cleans of a high gain head. I think a Marshall could do better. I accually was looking at a Powerball at one point, as I love Job For A Cowboy, Doom, they used a Bogner Ubershall, and an Engl Powerball.
If you think you can do better, start your quest for a new amp. If you like what you have, stick with what works for you. The Powerball is too much amp for me, my old Dual Recto was too much amp for me, but it all depends on what you're going for and what you need. Good luck in your quest for tone!
