Marzocchi MX Comp ETA

Hey I need some advice...I have $250 to spend on forks for my Norco Wolverine...which forks would you guys recommend for free ride/dirt jump/downhill riding I dont really do anything too big about 6 ft of air most and on to a slop landing. Do you guys think that the Marzocchi MX Comp ETA would be a good choice for me or can you guys recommend something better for around $250? Thanks in advance.

The MX Comp is a cross-country/trail fork - not downhill or FR. The MX Comp is a great cost-effective fork for its intended purpose - but not for your intended useage.

I personally am not aware of a good FR fork for $250.00.

i would love to take advantage of that deal on the serman flick plus, it would be less than 400can$ by the time i got it, but it says they can only ship to USA. too bad. I would suggest keeping an eye on the sales on pinkbike, you might find a good deal there.
