2005 marzocchi mx comp or pro?

ive been looking at new forks and the best two in my price range seem to be the mx comp w/eta and the mx pro w/eta. i know the pro has an external rebound adjuster, other than that is it worth the extra 40 bucks for the pro, seems that more people seem to buy the comps by the reviews ive read. if you have any input i would really appreciate it. thanks

I have the MX Comp with ETA that I replaced with air caps; you can adjust the stifness of the shock better this way I think.

I have got the Pro ETA with 105mm travel and love it. It is a solid shock and an excellent value, I honestly don't think it can be beat for the money.
