Hi all, I've done a lot of searching and most of the Monarch RT3 reviews/threads are based on the PUSHed version which they seem to not be making anymore. So forgive me if I've committed a forum sin with this thread.

I currently ride an 08 Enduro SL Sworks with a bunch of upgraded goodies (complements of the previous owner, my bro-inlaw). I love everything about the bike but I've heard the rear shock pales in comparison to other shocks. I'm looking to replace it with either the Float CTD Evolution or the Monarch RT3 (both stock not PUSHed). Any input on the choice between the two? I'm in Marin and need as much benefit from a shock on climbs as I do on the descents.

Thanks for the input!
