I have that shock on my parker. Its simple, easy to set up and seems pretty low maintenance. Its not very plush for small bumps, but works pretty well for bigger ones. This is my first full suspension bike so I don’t have much to compare it to. Here is a link to mtbr.com reviews. They may be able to give you more insight.
