2019 Fox Float X2 - Not enough tuning range?

I recently purchased a 2019 Fox Float X2 and put it on my 2016 Giant Reign.
I also attached a shockwiz to help me dial in all the adjustments.

I chose to go with the "Softest - Planted" setting on the shockwiz app, to match my riding preference, and just to see what it was like.

After fiddling a bunch, this is the best I could get:


I had no spacers installed, yet it told me to remove a spacer.
Similarly with the LSC, it was fully out at it's minimum, yet the shockwiz suggested less.

Has anyone seen this before?
I'm kinda disappointed that I can't get such an expensive shock the way I would like.

Any suggestions?
For reference, the shock tune is DHGC

the shock wiz only makes recommendations , and i think you should take it with a pinch of salt


the real question is : Are you happy with the shock ? Is there something that feel sit could be a bit better to you ? Is the something feeling harsh / slow/fast or whatever o you ?


If you're happy don't sweat what the shock wiz says

if not post here or send me a message , i see you're a saffa masekind

The X2 is a great shock. I know most people will disagree with me but I think the shock wiz is a frickin joke. I have buddies that tried it Seemed like a gimmick. Just my 2 cents. I would say set it up the old school way and start with getting your sag set right and go from there.

I initially started with around 35% sag, one spacer, and the recommended compression and rebound adjustments from the guide that came with the shock. It felt ok, but I wasn't blown away.

Here's the thing though, I'm not a pro rider, nor do I have a lot of experience with different shocks, so I couldn't translate what I was feeling to the six different things you can adjust on the shock.

Then I did a few rides with the shockwiz. The main changes it recommended were: More air, less spacers, and less compression.
It definitely felt better after doing that, so I think it is a useful device.

I don't really have much of a reference to what is good enough or what could be better. I'm not a pro rider or reviewer.
It feels good, but how do I know it couldn't be better if I could adjust it further?

very difficult to say , i could ride your bike and make comments but I don't weigh as much as you do nor do i ride with your style

If i could get detailed and slow mo vids of you and you bike as it moves through its suspension while you ride on different erain I could probaly give you go advice but that will only get you so far ( and i think the shock wiz can get you near that already )
