Strengths:    This is my first dropper post and it has been amazing. I had the Thomson Masterpiece and many other Thompson products in the past. This is right in line with their usual top quality and customer service. It has taken my all-mountain riding to a new level. Infinite positioning with smooth and precise action.

Weaknesses:    It is expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Bottom Line:   
This is the post to get for any trail or all-mountain bike. It is relatively light weight for a dropper and works great! So easy to use and beneficial to rides that I use it more than my front derailleur. Take your time setting it up on install and you'll love it. No hydraulics to mess with but instead a silky smooth cable and housing. Use two two 3M cable guides with zip ties on the top tube to mount the cable housing and use the floating guide included (works flawlessly). Also, don't over-tighten the seat collar on this or any other dropper post, will slow down action. I got the Thomson seat collar to complete the package and it looks great! This takes my riding to the next level.

Strengths:    Thomson Name

Weaknesses:    This post only lasted four months.The first indication of trouble was when the post would not return to full extension. The post started moving very slowly , then it stopped working completely.Went back to my traditional Thomson post. NOTE: This post was not exposed to excessive dirt or grim.

Bottom Line:   
Took the post to my local bike shop where it was purchased new.Waiting on a refund !
