    Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 3/Marzocchi Drop Off 3?

    I want to buy an upgrade for my norco wolverine and I was looking into both the Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 3 and Marzocchi Drop Off 3...I'm short on money so I don't want to spend a lot but which of these do you think would be better for some dirt jumping/freeride/DH...nothing too big most air I would end up getting is max 6 feet but landing on a slope. If you guys have any other suggestions I'd be happy to hear them but please try and keep them cheap the Drop Off is already past my limit. Thanks.

    It would depend on how big the travel on your current fork is. If its around 100mm then the dirt jumper would be best - anything bigger than 120mm and the drop-off would be better.
    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.

    Then the dirt jumper would look your best bet.

    However it is 35mm bigger then your current bike - it will increase the stress on your head tube and could lead to it snapping off.
