Got a Prophet MX frame I want to start using again but could never get the Rockshox Pearl shock to feel right so looking to replace it with another shock probably a Fox Float of some description secondhand cos there's plenty about. Anybody know what state of tune Floats were set up with on Prophets?as it might help me pick the right one and avoid having to have it custom tuned.Thanks

it's not just about the tuning, you want a low volume can on the shock as the Prophets setup is for fall rate, so to retain a linear stroke you need the smaller (std not high volume can).
Bear in mind if you buy 2nd hand you may need it serviced anyway, so you could get it tuned for your bike then

I went from a Manitou 3 way that I never got on with, via a borrowed high volume Fox RP32 (wallow city but much better) to a tailor tuned RP23 and it was like night and day compared to the Manitou.
