December 13, 2013
Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Adjustability is easy to work with, super plush ride. Hold up during beatings.

December 22, 2012
Pros: Adjustable
Easy to set up

Cons: None

Recommendation: It is smooth and the Kashima coating is slicker than snot. Easy to set up and a joy to ride on.

December 17, 2012
Model/Year: 2012

Pros: -Quick to setup with instructions from Fox
-Buttery smooth and responsive

Cons: -None

Recommendation: Anybody looking for a buttery smooth and adjustable shock for their dh or park bike will definitely appreciate this shock.

December 15, 2012
Model/Year: DHX RC4 2009

Pros: - Top level performance, smooth and ever so buttery
- Multiple features and adjustments
- Noticeable difference between adjustment increments
- Responsive
- Quality product

Cons: - Depending on what bike it is installed some of the adjustments could be difficult to reach (i.e. High/Low speed compression)
- Takes some time to setup

Recommendation: In my opinion the DHX RC4 is worth every penny. Loaded with tonnes of features it can cater to any dh trail. Yes it requires tools to adjust but at least they're not propitiatory and I'm usually carrying a multi-tool that works anyways.

I did find the stock steal spring to be a little inconsistent but that was easily solved by installing a Ti spring.

July 29, 2011
Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Solid construction, superior low speed sensitivity.
Superior control over the wheel when things get really rough.. The boostvalve works great

Cons: You need tools to adjust the clickers as they are stiff

Recommendation: One of the top rear coil shocks on the market. I can hardly believe that Fox improved even this one with the 2012. Great thing about the 2011, works great in all conditions superior control over both the small and big bumps. But you need to bring tools with you (2,3mm) allen keys to adjust the shock as the clickers are tight. For the AM-DH folk this shock you can't loose, expensive but worth it.
