    Anyone using a Monarch RT3 on their Blur LTc?

    My Fox RP23 that came stock on my 2011 LTc needs to be replaced.

    I'm considering switching to a Monarch RT3 because it is easier and cheaper to source spares here in Australia for servicing than Fox.

    Is anyone out there using the RT3 on their Blur LTc and how do you like it?

    Should I be buying the "Low" tune RT3?

    Thanks
    Chris.

    I'm not quite answering your question but I used a Monarch 3.3 in my LTc while my RP23 was getting PUSHed. I preferred the 3.3 to the stock RP23 by quite a bit. I believe my 3.3 is the high volume version.

    Monarch RC3 plus would be a perfect match for an LTc, just a suggestion.

    Thanks for the suggestion about the RC3...are you running one? Looks like I'm right between the 2012 and 13 models (2013 not available for another month)....are there any major differences with the new 2013 model?

    If it helps, I'm using that shock,with a 57 mm stroke on my Nickel. It works much better then the Fox RL. X-fusion's top of the line air shock would also be an excellent choice. On par with a PUSHEDed Fox.

    I run he RT3 on my Tallboy. Been really happy with the performance.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.
