Strengths:    Fork takes anything you dish at them. Plush, plush, plush. Uturn is a nice feature for climbing and xc. Able to make significant upgrades for a little extra cash.

Weaknesses:    Heavy.. 4 lbs

Bottom Line:   
Awesome all around fork for the weekend warrior to a xc rider. Handles 4ft drops and still sucks up the little bumps. Takes a few min, but after that the fork really opens up. Not sure if the bushings are getting coated or the wipers are getting coated... but they smooth out after a couple pedals. I upgraded the motion control to the Argyle motion control to add the flood gate. BAM! Fork now has the dampening of a higher priced Sid, Reba, or revelation.

Bottom Line:   
I use this fork for AM and sometimes freeride. It absorbs bumps very good and can handle jumps with no trouble. It's very adjustable and plush,and it's not expencive at all.
All in all great fork, 5 flaming chilis.

Strengths:    it's realy nice looking, U-Turn option for ups and downs and it souks up a landing and rocks/roots...

Weaknesses:    heavy?? 2.2kg

Bottom Line:   
its a realy nice looking fork... i'm suddenly much faster on "downhill" sections than before, and it realy doesnt hurt my hand after few rocks/roots, which meens it souks em up... i'm relly pleased with its work... for a price, it cant get any better (used can be found in about 150$, and mine was brand new for 180$)...
