    Strengths:    Dampening, control, reliability, tuning,

    Weaknesses:    NONE: People complain weight but this is 80 grams heavier than a Fox dhx 5.0 so weight is not a weakness

    Bottom Line:   
    I used a DHS for 2 years and never serviced it, it has NEVER leaked or givin me an issue. There has never been a blown or destroyed avalanche shock that Im aware of.
    This shock is simple to adjust its a true speed sensative shock and helps you hold line like the bikes on raisl as well as saves your butt when you launch and overshoot or gauge a drop wrong and you slam the deck flat...

    Best shock Ive ridden to datright there with the DHS just with the resevoir hooked on the shock instead of a hose.

    Strengths:    Damping, rebound, phushness, bottomless

    Weaknesses:    Weight (but that is due to the way the thing works and the quality), eyelet size not standard, not a standard spring size.

    Bottom Line:   
    This shock is awsome, you can throw it off stuff, hit rock gardens and take it over slippery roots it just does everything well.
    It is in a different league to the other shocks I have tried.
