Strengths:    Strong! STIFF! I've bent three stock arches. I dont see this doin the same. I used to get some disk rub from my XTs, NOT ANYMORE!!!!

Weaknesses:    Hefty, if you can call that a weakness.
Light, strong, cheep, pick any two.


Bottom Line:   
BUY IT! YOU WONT BE SORRY! If youre a bigger guy, & you need stiff, this is it! & you thought a QR20 was stiff.... The two together...... BURLEY
The best fork upgrade I've ever seen. Period.
