Scott genius 730
Hey I am looking to buy this bike what are your thoughts?
I personally don't care for propriety suspension parts. That is my thought.
the shock is a firmer tune and oriented more for xc.

Dirt did a review on the Genius 720 a few months ago and their opinion of it was... well it wasn't flattering.

Also it was nearly 32lb (against a claimed 28), so not even lightweight either.
The 730 is the same geometry and suspension, just with heavier parts, so it won't be a lightweight bike!
Dirt are pretty honest about the bikes they review, but even for them it seemed to get a proper slating. If you can get a demo ride on one then go for it, it might be a lovely bike, but I wouldn't buy one blind (or any bike for that matter).
If this bike peaks your interest, get a jekyll. . .
Thanks allot goin to see other options then...... any sugestions
