    SB66 and other air shocks?

    Anybody running an air shock other than the RP23 on their SB66 and how does it feel in comparison? The RP23 doesn't feel too bad for for the mostly shreddy singletrack riding I do (buffed, loamy, PacNW pine needled trails with burms, tables and some square edged hits), but just wondering how other air shocks may perform? Just want something that may be a little softer in the mid-stroke to sit a little lower in the travel (to lower the bike more) and something with bottom out control for the hits at end stroke. Never been a fan of the DHX air when ridden/demo'ed on other comparable bikes, but can't help but wonder of how it would do on the SB66 since the Switch design allows for optimal mid-stroke support and seems like would support the typically "wallowy" feel of the DHXa well. Also anyone run a RS Monarch RT-AM or Monarch Plus RC3 on the SB66 too?
    Thx,
    JG
    Ride On!

    I ran the pushed Monarch RC 3 plus on a 7 and it was awesome. Quite honestly its down to the Pushed Monarch RT-AM, RC Plus, of CCDB coil shock for me.
