Strength:

+ very sensitive
+ high- and low-speed adjustments
+ sligthly progressive (comparable to Monarch Plus with 3 Rings)
+ trail adjust is perfect
+ very light (300gr)

Weakness:

- spare parts seem to be rare
- information material or reviews are rare

I am riding this shock for 6 months now and I can totally recommend this damper to a wide range of riders. The damping characteristics are supereb. Do not get fooled by the weight an compare this damper with Monarch + or similar. This thing eats stuff up and softens it like the big DH damper like a Vivid Air or Double Barrel. The changes on high- or low-speed-compression are noticable and the range of adjustment is more than sufficient.

The Trail Adjuster fits totally my needs:
a) totally open for full downhill performance
b) much stiffer for trail use (trails without lots of bumps) (much harder than i.e. Monarch)
c) Lockout for climbing fire roads (also your saddle position gets better as you do not use any SAG)

I have no idea how Marzocchi put so much performance into such a small thing but it is impressive!
