I'm building up a tracer VP and took the advice of many on here and did away with the RP23. Got a brand new isx-6 rear shock, and was surprised on how sticky this is. This is my first non Fox rp (whatever) shock, which are really smooth...but is this a normal trait for a brand new isx-6 shock? If so, will it ever be as smooth as a fox rear shock?

(I've researched prior threads and can't find anything, and since this seems to be the 'go to' shock for the tracer VP, thought I would post it in the intense forum).
Thanks...

the isx shocks just feels sticky in your workshop with the ellbow on the saddle test.. on the trail they are just wonderful.
i had the same expressions like you when i got my isx 6. no worries!
i think it is because they have a real compression damping in comparison to the fox.

thanks for the info...it seems that the elbow test is completely opposite riding on the trail. Much better on the trail :thumbsup:
