Are oil forks better nowdays?

Hello, back in -95, or was it -96, I bought a Marzocchi xc-600. It was good for one season then it started leaking oil. Had it serviced but a few months after it started leaking again. The year after same thing, I tried to add mediun springs, but the da** thing started leaking oil after a couple of months. Now it is placed in the basement, and have been there several years. How are the new ones? Any better, or was that just mine that was a bad production ex? Canīt believe that was just mine, think Iīve heard of people with similar experiences.

I bought a Marzocchi last year, after 1/2 the season, all is still good, Im al little heavier 82 kilos
(all upper body... ha!)
I have heard people complain about rock shox's seals, but thats what Ive heard.
the place where I bought the marz felt that they were better, but heavier than their RS counterparts

Besides Fox Marzocchi IMHO are the best in the market. I have a 99 Z-5 my wife uses a 2002 Z-4 and I will soon have a Marathon. You cannot go wrong with a "Zoke."

Thankīs for your replys, and good luck with your zokes.

Get rid of it and go buy a current model year fork.
