    Dirt Jam Pro == Dirt Jumper III?

    Seeing lots of these Dirt Jam Pros on new jumping hardtails and wondering if anyone has the full scoop on what they actually compare to? I'm thinking it's pretty much the same fork (internals and crown/stanchions) as a Drop-Off or Dirtjumper JIII with only a single SSV? I have one on a jump/4x hardtail and am wondering how it will hold up. Long-term plan is to replace it with either a Pike or a Flick.

    Any informed thoughts?

    Here's the specs from Marz WWW....

    my friend has one on his scrap. it feels okay but i'm a little too heavy for it so the travel goes away fairly qulivly, besides that it is a reasonablky good quality fork.
