I'm currently on the market for a new cross country race fork. I'll be looking for a 29er, 100mm travel, 15mm axle, "relatively" light fork. The fork will be matched to a Santa Cruz Highball C so I prefer something pretty stout. The current list includes the Fox 32 Terralogic, Fox 32 Fit CTD remote, Rock Shox Sid XX, and the Magura TS8? I'm 190 pounds, don't ride softly, and race Cat 2. What are your thoughts?

Thanks

I have a TB C and a bud with a newer TB C with 2012 / 2013 Fox 32s. (1 CTD / 1 Terra)
My experience is a fight of getting all the travel out of the fox vs going into brake dive / especially in a downhill situation.

I have only demo rides on the Rock Shox and I always felt like there was no unison from the Fork and rear Shock working together. (Kinda like a rocking horse on a waterbed) This might not be an issue on a HT.

Can't speak to the Magura...

On a side note... I too am looking at new bike builds and a new promising fork (will wait for the reviews / and to handle) is this new 29er fork from BOS.
