    New question here. Any 6.6 owners running more 'modern' rear shock?

    Hi all
    I'm looking to change my rear shock on the 6.6, for a general riding, to an air shock. Has anyone fitted one of the newer generation shocks to their 6.6?
    Looking for feedback on things like:
    CC DB Air
    BOS Vipr
    RockShox Void/Monarch
    Xox Float X etc

    I've heard stories of some shocks not working with the 6.6 due to the suspension curve..any help would be great.
    I'm changing from a 5th Element coil (which I'll be keeping for uplift days).
    Cheers
    Steve

    You my man need to send that 5th Element to Craig over at Avalanche. He'll make that shock work better than any 'modern' shock that's out there.
