My buddy has a rock shox recon, and after riding my fork (marz z1 150mm) he liked the more stiff and beafy feel. He rides a 2007 trek fuel 7 or 8.
He found a Drop Off 3 for a great price, 130mm of travel just like the recon, but coil instead of air. I know it is going to be heavier, but will he be able to tell a difference? Will the Marz be stiffer (it is non-thru axle), and I am assuming more linear since it is coil?
Would you trade the recon for the drop off if you were into a more AM riding style? Would any of this matter at all?
Post your pro-s and con-s, because frankly I don't know what to tell him.
