Strength:

Light, beefy, stiff, cheaper than 9er, now in proper offset (45mm)

Weakness:

Not as pretty as 9er, and a little longer.

I can't speak to long term durability as I on have 40ish mi on it. Nice and stiff, not much flex from brake application, steers true. I wish the axle to crown was a little shorter, especially on a 29er I'd rather it be on the shorter side of suspension corrected. Build quality is very nice, absolutely worth the money over rando chinese/ebay forks. A little cheaper than the Niner forks, but I think that's fair given Niner's prettier paint. Steers true with little flex in any direction. A steel fork will be more compliant if that's what you are looking for.
