I bought a 2005 Kona Stuff with the intent of trail riding and dirt jumping. Two years later I'm looking for another fork. Currently I have a 2005 Marzocchi Dropoff-comp, and want to upgrade to a 2007 Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 3. I was wondering if the suspention improvment would be worth the money I would spend on the fork. I found someone in town selling a Dirt Jumper 3 100mm for $120. Will I see more improvment with another fork, or is the 2007 Dirt Jumper 3 my next fork?

Personally, I would get the DJ, i've always liked them.

The DJ 3 will be a fair improvment over your dropoff-comp. I've ridden both and was acually impressed with how smooth the dropoff's travel felt after hearing soo many poor reviews. The biggest improvment you will see between the two forks is that the DJ 3 will be stiffer and a over all stronger fork. Oh and the DJ 3 will also have rebound adjust.
