ok, so I just bought a new 09 session 88 and I weigh about 230. according to the calculator i need to get a 570#ish spring for my bike. So should I go soft and buy a 550 or more firm at 600? I think the 600 would be better if i decided to do drops right?

You can pre-load your 550 spring, you know.

I like a soft ride with a mix of both downhill and jumps but mostly drops and rocky sections. I will ride at whistler and northstar this summer with this rig, and my skills as of now can take up to a 6+foot drop. Im only freaking out about this cuz im a clyde and I dont want to bottom out when i do a 4 foot drop (my current problem with my reign x).
