    Swinger 3 coil or Romic coil

    Upgrading to coil.
    I just built my first AM rig. 05 Ironhorse Warrior w/ Radium RL. I just started last sept and now finding myself getting better. I'm finding out that the lock-out doesn't help me climbing on a technical trail. And when I'm going downhill, the lock out somewhat slows me down. As I always have to check the trail and my speed everytime there's an uphill coming. It's starting to bother me.

    Suggestions please

    Romic will definatelly be plusher as it doesn't have a platform as strong as the SPV. SPV will likely handle big drops better, but it lacks any type of compression piston all it has for damping is an oil metering valve. Reliability while, however, Romic is a crap shoot. Some last for years some are always breaking down.

    Apparently the 4-way swinger is a huge improvement over the 3way. You might want to look into that, otherwise I would go with the Romic.
