I'm currently running a totem on my do it all bike but have been researching if a 180 Float would be a good replacement. I'm about 170-175lbs with gear and ride some park (wbp) but mostly freeride. The lighter weight of the float would be great but as I was riding today I was loving how the totem was feeling through rocky lines and off drops. Has anyone ridden both? Would I be losing much if I went to a float?

I prefer the Float 180 over the Totem.
Rode a Totem for 2+ years-uphill, DH, bike park. Great fork.
You won't be losing anything in my experience if you switch to the 180 Float.
It's a better fork for a "do it all" big bike in my experience.
Just stay on top of frequent lower leg bath fluid changes and you'll be good with the Float.

Cheers and thanks for the info (you got me listening to OI this morning)

another vote for the Float. The newest version, especially. The Totem always felt like it would dive pretty badly under braking with the limited time I had riding one. It also apparently had some problems with seals and the like, but I never encountered any myself. But the Float has been super solid from day one. No problems, very adjustable, and it is nice and light for how strong it is.
