Do you want a light fork with lots of features or do you want a stiff beefy fork that will be simpler to use and tune?

I think marzocchi 55R got 160mm travel coz i got on my FR bike. the weight is 2.8kg and its not light for XC/AM bike . . . but i'm now gonna purchase the RECON 351 for my AM bike, the reason is this category just need much more lighter fork.. for me myself AM fork must be less than 2kgs. cheers! :p

The Recon because it has a much better damping system. The Zoke's going to spike badly over fast, high speed hits. The Recon's Motion Control damping will keep that from happening, and you'll be able to go faster.
