Strength:

super stiff, plush, cheap. soaks up everything, you can easily fit a 2.7 and still have tons of clearance. probably could put a 3" on there but I've never tried it. 36 mm stantions!!!!!!!

Weakness:

I somehow blew the dampening system, its 80 bucks to replace it. stickers are just plain stupid looking so i took them off. but the lowers scratch really easy.

this is an awesome fork for the money. its prity much the same buy as a jr.t or boxxer race, but a little less money 1 inch less travel and alot stiffer and more reliable than boxxer race. if you want to put a 6" travel fork on your hardtail or dual suspetion bike. this would be a great way to go. after a year of hardcore abuse, i've found that this holds up to almost anything. i busted my wrists last summer on a 10 foot to flat(that obviously i messed up on) and i'm working myself back up to big drops again. like 7' to flat and big gaps.

Strength:

great fork for the price, retails at $600. stiff, strong, can take prity much anything you can throw at it

Weakness:

some stiction, dampening is very hard to adjust to what you like

its a great fork if you can't afford anything more, but if you can afford it, buy something by rock shox, or marzocchi.
