Iv just changed the forks on my orange sub five from 2003 EXR comp to 2006 rokshox J3's. I found I could bottom out the EXR's easily but so far I have not managed to with the J3's and the lockout is really handy. The only problem I have is the rockshox are physically smaller, thinner legs, which ones do you guys think are the better forks?

The marzocchi are better, are they air of coil. If air you can use a shock pump to make them harder for your weight/riding style

They are the coil version, i am prefering the rockshox at the mo so I think ill stick with them for now, I think they are more of a budget fork but feel better.
