    There are rumors of a new Domain which is supposed to be reasonably priced

    so 180-200mm then?
    single or dual crown?
    cheep new or used?

    new domain would be your only real option. saw pics of a dualcrown version as well.

    older 888 or supert would be a good used choice. there are alot of different years/styles. but someone on here could tell ya which years etc to get.

    How few are you talking about?

    You can pick up a used 03-04 Super T for around $250.

    New Domains are the obvious choice but keep an eye on the second hand market, 888s are awesome forks and I've had several pairs of Junior and Super Ts, although they'll almost certainly be a bit knackered.

    05 or 06 888. You should be able to find one for under $300. Probably their best model year.

    You really asking that? I'm guessing you haven't browsed enough to know more specifics are required to answer that. What kind of bike, what kind of trails, etc. Search is your best friend. I'm broke as hell too, but no way would I buy a $300 fork. Forks in that price range tend to be pretty old and beat up. You may get lucky though and find an older, non-beat up one. I suggest save a few hundred more and hold out for the new dual crown domain. Supposed to be $600 MSRP. But if you bike can't handle 200mm, you've already saved money.

    So, I'm guessing the other thread you made on this subject didn't answer your question? Like I said in my previous reply, search is your best friend.

    *EDIT* sorry, your other thread was shocks, not fork.
