Strengths:    This RST fork is just awesome: strong stanchions, simple yet effective rebound control, good spring strength for intermediate weighs (180-200), very tweakable and with a strong 20-mm through axle.

Weaknesses:    I weigh less that 180-200 lbs and struggled to find a lighter spring, but once I got it, the fork woks flawlessly

Bottom Line:   
I know lots of people only buy Marzocchi, Roch Shox or Manitou; think out of the box, I've tried high-end RST forks in the 1990's and loved them, so once I got my hands on this, I really like it, way better than the Psylos. OBvioulsy a RST Sigma would have been incredible, but they are a bit hard to find.

Good fork for Freeride/DH. I've done some 4-6 feet jumps on it and it performs just right. Don't buy it for XC for it's got 180mm (7 inches) of travel and you'd be wobbling around with it.
