    New rear shock for Rune V 1.5?

    I was beating my Rune to hell out in Bend, OR on vacation and took it into a shop to take care of some noises that had developed and just get it tuned up for my last few days. After wrenching on my bike for a little bit he commented on how nice it was, but that the first thing he would do going forward is replace the Manitou Evolver ISX-6 I've got on there. I haven't been terribly active on the forums over the last two years, but has there been a falling out with this shock? I thought as far as air shocks went it was the 'bees knees' at the time. I have always thought about switching over to an Elka though, especially since I will be taking it up to Highlands more in the near future.

    ISX-6 is a great shock. Most people have never heard of it so they probably assume it's junk, like a lot of Manitou's stuff. Can't go wrong with the Elka either.

    Alright, thanks for the replies guys. I thought its been great, then again I've never ridden a Rune with another rear shock so I thought there was a chance I was missing something here.
