Whoa for a second I thought Seraph actually went for a bike ride but then I realized this was someone else's bike.

33 Enduro World Series Bike Checks
And Spunk, you might just be dealing with bad tunes on those inline shocks you've ridden. I'm 185 pounds but I ride like a bag of bricks, and I need a mandatory compression tune on every shock I ever get. Most stock bikes come with a compression tune that's five or six times too light for me. If you purchased an aftermarket Float X it probably has a medium/medium compression and rebound tune, whereas a lot of complete bikes come with a light/light.

33 Enduro World Series Bike Checks
I'm one of the riders in the photos, Charlie Sponsel on the Blue Felt near the bottom. I like my Float X, but I never had any problems with the damper on a standard Float CTD or RP23 heating up to the point where I perceived a significant loss in damping. Those little turd shocks can put up with an amazing beating. I can't speak for air shocks from other brands because I've only ever ridden Fox, but in my experience a Fox air shock is a pretty bombproof thing. As for the EWS, I know a lot of guys switched to coils for the last round due to the damper fade you mention. I didn't, and I didn't have any noticeable problems. As for air vs. coil, the spring rate tuning you do on a modern air shock with volume reducing spacers is invaluable. You can turn a crummy bike into a great bike with a 50 cent piece of plastic. You cannot tune a bike's wheel rate the same way with a coil. The real golden age will come when we can get air shocks for trail riding with volume adjust, some sort of lockout-y thing, and REAL compression adjust knobs. And I mean from Fox or Rockshox, I wouldn't touch a Cane Creek DoubleBlowout Air with a 10 ft. pole.
