Those of you who've bought a Gas Gas recently, which did you choose? Anyone now wish they would've bought the Ohlins fork but didn't initially?

I haven't had the opportunity to ride the new Zokes, but have recently switched my WPs for Ohlins. The Ohlins are a thing of beauty for sure. In stock trim, they are definitely superior to my WPs when pushed. I think with a revalve, things would be much closer.

I've heard from some reliable people that the new Zokes are 95% of the Ohlins, both in stock trim. The money saved could buy a custom revalve for both ends. I think in the end, this is better money spent. JMO

My logic for switching was a little more twisted ;)

If the new zokes are "shivers" I would opt for them and save the $$. I must admit though, on the GG I have owned(3) they had wp's and they were revalved by RACETECH and turned out great.
