Just curious to those who have ridden both are thru axle forks that much better? I'm building up a Sinister Gruitr and am at the point of buying a fork and trying to decide if I should go the TA way ...any suggestions?

20mm Thru axle is noticeably stiffer than QR. I got my first 20mm XC fork about 5 years ago and it was night and day. It felt like a mini version of my DH fork. It tracked through rocks and and creek beds with no twisting.

I just went with a 20mm maxle conversion from 9mm QR and the front end is a lot more rigid. Helps a lot in the rock gardens
