Strength:

Super plush. No mid stroke wallow. Low pressure. Simple. No piggyback fitment issues. Great out of the box bottom out resistance. Lighter than a coil over. Durable thus far.

Weakness:

May make your fork feel harsh in comparison. :)

If you care about weight, it's a little heavier than an RP23.

Lockout is kind of lame, but I'm not into lockouts anyway. When activated, if you're still seated on the bike (applying weight), turning off the lockout is much harder as the lever will resist.

Some initial QC problems... Ronnie and Mike at Marz America straightened it out and it's been great since.

Unbelievably good shock. It's very smooth, more so than some of the coil overs I've tried. Seems to have very little stiction and compression damping which irons out rock gardens, yet it takes a tremendous hit to bottom. Bottoming is not harsh even when too little air pressure is used.

If it's got the durability that the pre-Taiwan Marzocchi forks had, this thing will have no equal.

Strength:

Looks great - feels great - requires low air pressure

Weakness:

so far I have'nt found any

I'm very pleased with the feel of the shock - it does'nt blow through the stroke like my dhx air did. There is no need for an anti-bob feature because the shock feels firm at the start of the stroke yet stll responsive. Though it does lock out if needed. I never have been a big fan of air shocks , but I'll have to admit I'm loving this one!
