You get what you pay for with this shock. If you want your bike to be a plush, bump-eating, traction producing, huck-to-flat-hungry monster, this is the one. I got addicted after riding one for the first time and haven't looked back however many years later. The new version just takes it up another notch. The DH performance is unreal, but the thing that continues to blow my mind is how much more traction you get on techy climbs. This shock is an all around bike enhancer. However, the real icing on the cake is the incredible customer service you will receive from PUSH if you should ever happen to have an issue. This company stands behind their products and won't hesitate to go out of their way and make sure you are dialed in for your next ride.
