Strengths:    Tough & dependable, nothing to break that I can see. Excellent for a stiff XC ride, I don't know how good for hardcore DH running.

Weaknesses:    Heavy

Bottom Line:   
Nice match, now I havce Marzocchi in front and back! Heavier than the super light AD-8. That was a nice shock, actually even plusher than the Marz, but blew a seal like a zit on the forehead of a 15 year old. Reliability is important! The spring match for my body weight is quite stiff, but does soak up the hits very nice. The rebound damping is superb and e-z to adjust!
