Strength:

dunno yet,iguess it looks sick.Plus it`s simple to adjust,like the old Vanilla RC.

Weakness:

I`m sure there aint no weaknesses,come on it`s a freakin` Zoke!

Just ordered it on Friday,Marzocchi says they`ll ship it out the week after Interbike.Hell it aint even on shelves yet.I`m looking forward to this thing.Although I`ve come to love my Swinger 4 Way after I set it up perfectly,This baby is probably gonna rule anything out there.Screw it,I`m giving it 5 rat turds for now,and I`m sure my follow up review will be just as good.

Strength:

strong,plush,easily adjustable

Follow up:Had to take the shock up to Marzocchi`s headquarters(hour drive from my house)because the rebound knob was spinning freely.They fixed it in like a half hour.Turns out there is an o ring or seal that was not making contact with the rebound knob,causing it to be loose as a Vegas hooker.They fixed the problem and it`s nice and tight now.As for the ride:plush.That basically sums it up,plush.This thing sure bobs a lot.I don`t pedal my Demo uphill anyway,but it is really noticeable when Im mashing out to pick up speed.I`m kinda missing the feel of my Swinger.I know,I know.I should love it just because it`s a Zoke right?Well I do love it,and their customer service is great.Like to hit things hard and fast?Get this shock.I do like not having a platform,simplicity is best.But if you pedal up,could be a squish-fest.Hey look I`m a poet now.

Strength:

SOOO smooth I forgot it was there , did a big jump today and it soaked it up like a dry sponge. Looks like a huge gold chain on a pimp .
Plush plush plush ,matches my '06 66 RC2X like they are identical twins

Weakness:

the rebound dampening is a little to sensitive , seems like nothing happens untill the last click the only thing Marzocchi needs to improve .

I had the to choose between the Fox DHX 5.0 and ROCO I changed them over several times and both felt great but something about the ROCO just felt right a hard decision when the DHX has such good reviews and great history and the ROCO here in Australia (i checked with the distributor) has no spare parts yet for service or alternative springs and no date set soon. So I hope I dont blow it up soon! but with Marzocchi's history of longevity and quality design I have gone with the ROCO.
My bike feels better than it ever has so that was enough for me.

Strength:

-adjustability
-pedalling performance
-preload
-set up range
-looks

Weakness:

-none

This is the best of the best. The Roco is better than the Fox and Manitou rear shocks. The adjustablity is amazing, and you can switch from a DH setting to a climbing setting in seconds. The Roco will match the plushness of your Marzocchi fork to give your bike an air ride with amazing feedback and control on the trail. Only Downhillers and agressive All-Mountain riders should perchase this rear shock.

Strength:

Ridiculously plush
darn good looks
its a zocchi

Weakness:

no platform (could be good or bad)

This is THE rear shock to get if you do minimal pedaling and care solely about plushness and tuneablility. The no platform thing is not suited for me as i ride up what i go down but it is definately more plush than any rear shock out there, and ive ridden em all.

Strength:

Nice looking, User friendly. Little Adjustments (+). Light weight.

Weakness:

None so far

This shock makes a difference in pedaling even without SPV. The Manitou 6way w/ SPV had more bobing. It feels a tad bit lighter than the 6way. Basic 3 adjustment that does a lot (Compression, Rebound, and Air). Very nice plush feel on the trail and it eats up rocks and bumps. Spent 4 hours on it today and loved it.

Strength:

Duh,it`s a Zoke! No millions of adjustments to screw with-the ease of adjustment like the old Vanilla RC`s of yesteryear,without the crappy feel and performance of the old Vanillas.

Weakness:

None.

When it arrived at the shop,I was amazed at how heavy it was.I ain`t a weight weenie,so it didn`t bother me,but if you are one,get a ti spring for a little lighter setup.Kills it.Completely kills it.A shock this shweet should be priced a hell of a lot more,but I bet marz will make a killing off of them.
