Strengths:    Soaks up the big stuff and the small stuff. Super Smooth

Weaknesses:    Some sloppy workmanship: namely the right-side stanchion is a little loose. Fox says the amount of play is within tolerances (technically it results in an amount of play that is less than the normal amount from fork flexion). The play hasn't increased in a year and half of riding, so I haven't been scared into changing it out ...yet.

Bottom Line:   
The play in the right stanchion was fixed for a couple of weeks when I sent the fork back and they changed out the seals. The fork developed the play just over a month after purchasing it (by then it was too late to return). LAME. The bike still handles like a champ in the turns and the rough stuff - a fact which I attribute to Specialized more than Fox.

Addendum: My GF has the 2006 version (I have the 2005). Her fork has no play whatsoever.

A quick way to check for this play in a new or used bike would be to grab the front brake and rock the bike back and forth while holding the headset. It will seem like the head set it loose, but if the headset is fine, then you know you have a bum fork.
