It's impossible to shim a damper to become position-sensitive, as an air spring is. Dampers are speed-sensitive, however, and it could be configured to be more progressive with respect to speed.

https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2852745/ very good deal for a mrp hazzard shock for the sentinel. I've had one as well and it plays very nicely with the kinematics of the sentinel because of the large bottom out bumper and the ability to use a progressive coil spring. much much better than a dpx2.

does the Rock shox coil play nice on it? if you were about 170-180 would you get the recommended sag with a 400lb spring. I am a fairly punchy rider.

I would say absolutely not with the stock link. I'm 185ish riding weight and 450 was too soft. Maybe ok if I wasn't doing any hard hits at all but I'm now on the cascade link and planning to move to a 550 (500 would probably be a better race setup but I do little racing and much gnarlyness). Keep in mind that the stock link is pretty linear and you probably want more like 20% sag with it.

I can't speak for the RS shock.

anyone else here running a deluxe ultimate coil on a V1 without a cascade link? Are you finding that its not bottoming out too much and actually sits up in the travel? Im curious as to why im enjoying mine so much and don't feel like im bottoming out too much given all the talk of lack of progressiveness in the V1.

I ran a RS Deluxe and MRP two stage coil on my V1 without the Cascade link. It felt pretty bad and was bottoming all the time even though the spring was good sag wise and it did ramp up travel. But ultimately I preferred the DPX for the bottom out control. I've just installed the Cascade link and had the RS unit Tractive Tuned by Vorsprung. First shake down ride tomorrow.

I have to get ride of my Cascade Link for the V1 Sentinel. Push will not tune my shock. If you would like one at a discount let me know.

If I was buying a 1200 dollar shock I would expect them to bend over backwards to make me happy.

I didn't pay 1200 I got it used for alot less.

But yes I was less than enthused.

It rides well hough.
