Word 'round the campfire is that Romics can be set up to perform just like 5th's, but I personally have a Vanilla RC, so what do I know? When I blow this shock, I'm going to a Romic.

They are all good shocks in their own ways, just decide what you need from the shock first, then make your decision based on what you want the shock to do. Bottom line is they are all better than anything Fox has to offer.

its a SPV-style shock, yet stilll manages to feeel/ride "lively" like a Vanilla RC does..best part of the Romic is its all hydraulic... there is no Air-internals involved...

its what i would get if i needed a new shock....

How does the Romic compare to a RC? I perhaps might put on on my Shore and hack it up. Thats if my RC ever gives, its going strong and lasting thru all the landings I have thrown at it.
