I had an '07 Turner Flux frame I built up, had an '04 Blur frame I built up, and still have a '07 El Salty frame I built up. The Blur felt too twitchy/nervous and I felt the 'pedal stall' with the VPP linkage when hitting bumps in granny/one. The Turner's handling never felt right to me and the rear suspension felt ok, but nothing special. The El Salty has great handling and rear suspension action is great. So of the three based on my personal experience I'd say go with the Ventana. Another recommendation I could make is the Intense Spider XVP. It's specs/geometry and VPP suspension is about the same as the Blur, but the Intense handles great and I feel their application of the VPP suspension is much better (both my blur and my Spider had the same 5th Element air shock, so the shock wasn't the variable between them).
