Strengths:    Weight, large hit comliance

Weaknesses:    Fore aft flex , overdamped

Bottom Line:   
Purchased this when my Fox Prodeal was taking far to long. Intially fork felt lederhosen good until the speed picks up. I have tried all combinations of settings and can not this fork to remotely compliant. Turned up the threshhold and then the rebound to try and tune out the dive and front end chatter when on the front brake but still dives and vibrates like it had some fresh C batteries installed. It seems like the inherent fore/aft flex occurs before any damping. It chatters over high frequency bumps. I have 105 pos/neg air (dropped from 115) and it still feels way overdamped at my 180 lbs. Will try lighter weight oil to see if I can get the damping to work before the flex.
