    2013 Hardrock vs 2013 Marlin...

    Hardrock and Marlin are same price. However, Hardrock has hydraulic brakes...are other features on Marlin better to be priced equally?

    Thanks (newbie here)

    generally, 17.5 seems fine as well, since my reach is long...but i didnt try 15.5 and 17.5 of the same model...and different makers feel different even for the same size

    Hardrock has hydraulic brakes, Mamba has 100mm of travel. Components otherwise are basically a wash.

    Bottom line, try both and get what feels better. If they both feel great, get what looks better.
