    Monarch on DW Spot - but which model, RC3 Plus or RT3 or 4.2?

    What are folks' recommendations for the RS Monarch on a DW Spot (2010 model).. the Monarch Plus RC3, or the Monarch RT3 or the Monarch 4.2?

    And which tune - Mid Reb/High, Low or Mid?

    Rider weight 200lbs, aggressive trail riding mainly.

    Depends on your riding style. RC3 for aggressive riding, RT3 for general trail riding. RT-AM (Push only as far as I know) - somewhere between those two.
    Low rebound tune, but it's hard to get in the right size. Push tuning solves that.

    Would that be Low Rebound/Low Compression, or would a Mid Rebound/Low Compression be good?
