    Fox 34 performance gives a lot of value and quality for the price. Stay away from cheap crap.

    The Recon, while inexpensive, basic, and relatively heavy, is a quality entry level fork. Recon hands down.

    I'd pick a Raidon and change the grease on the air side to 30w oil.
    It has a sealed cartridge so no other maintenance is necessary.
    The Recon has a low end plastic damper that's easily overwhelmed at faster speeds.
    It has little small bump compliance.
    A Fox 34 is better than any listed.
    A XCR air is a Raidon with one plastic bushing inside instead of two. Two is better.
    A Manitou Mattoc Pro is a top level fork along with a MRP Ribbon and a DVO.
