Strengths:    It is very light, Very strong/stiff, and looks good.

Weaknesses:    the fork hardens up and gets very stiff in the cold or when i jump but when it sits or just riding around it gets plush

Bottom Line:   
great fork buy one if you dont want to spend money on a fork for another 3 years. Mine is almost 3 years old and its has been through a few different owners and is awesome

Strengths:    Light
pretty stiff
hasnt blown up. yet


Weaknesses:    springs are a bit soft out of the box


Bottom Line:   
replaced dj2 with this to lighten it up.
huge difference in weight, but still feels solid.
springs are just s bit soft for me but Im used to DJ2. I weigh 170.

big upgrade. the front end feels soooo much lighter.
sacrificing a little bit of strength but the ability to bunnyhop 50% higher and manual well is worth it.
if youre sick of the heavy ass fork on your front end then ditch it and buy this.
