I'm picking up a used '08 Blindside next weekend. I'm getting more into FR and some DH and will make a trip up to Whistler this summer for a few days. I'm currently on a Giant Reign but the Fox Float shock and Talas 32's are taking a beating.

The seller is giving me the option of a 350, 450, or 500 pound spring for the DHX 5.0

I'm a pretty light guy at 145 without gear, maybe low 150's geared. Anyone out there have a suggestion?

well the formula kicks back #300 so get the #350. It might be ok, especially if youre doing some drops. the 450 and 500 will be way too firm. Im #210 and runs a 450 lb spring on my BS. Its leverage ratio is a little lower than the '08 but its not that far off.
