    Which fork upgrade for my 2011 GF Marlin

    Hi,
    Getting back into MBing after a bit of a hiatus.
    I just got a great deal on a gently pre-owned 2011 Gary Fisher Marlin XL in new condition. My 1st upgrade is going to be the forks. I'd like to spend around $200 if possible. I did find a 2012 Reba RL 100MM for $225 on CL. Is that a good deal? I see there are a few clearance forks on pricepoint. Any thoughts on this? I guess I should stay as close to the original offset which I think is 51MM, confirm?
    Any other upgrade ideas for this bike would be much appreciated? Thanks in advance
    P.S. I'm 6'2" and 225

    The 2012 Reba is a good deal depending on condition. It is 46mm offset.
    I'd use it.

    Not completely positive, but I think that bike came stock with only one fork.
