A Fathom is going to be a huge upgrade and you will definitely start to feel more confident after a few rides.  I have owned a few decent full suspension bikes from the early 2000’s and I must say the Fathom is very trust worthy (my current ride:2019 Fathom 1 27.5).  The modern geometry makes a big difference.  The lack of rear suspension is the only limit I have  on it…but it’s an amazing bike at that price point.  And it’s a blast to ride even in the rough stuff.
