I have a medium Heckler, recently changed from a Pike Sl to a Marzocchi Z1 FR1 with 150mm. And I love the Zocchi and the slacker headangle. The Pike was nice, but felt too linear. The Zocchi just feels much more bottomless and stiffer.
NOW my question. I am using an Manitou Swinger AIR 4 way, which I like actually BUT I gain only 5 inches of travel and not 5.6 inches.(I huck quite a bit, so extra bottom out resistance would be VERY nice) And also I want to go back to coil, because I donÂ´t want to fiddle with air pressure any longer.
I can get Swinger 4 way COIL shocks for very small $$, right eye to eye and more travel(2.25). WouldnÂ´t even cost me a buck, to get a new one and sell my air shock. BUT how are the Coil 4way swingers on the heckler.
I found almost nothing in the forums about it.
Should be a decent shock I think, more active than the 5th Element coil?
Or should I try to get a DHX coil, but it costs 3 times the price of the swinger, springs are fricken expensive and I am a (quite) poor student?
