Manitou Axel Elite or Super

I'm getting a better fork for my nephew's Trek. It came with an InSync. I can get a 2004 Manitou Axel Elite or Axel Super for about the same price ($100-120.00). I can't tell the difference from reading the specs. Anybody using one of these have a comment? Thanks.

Not sure if the 2004's are the same as the 06's, but if they are - definitely go with the Super. It has Rebound adjustment and the Elite doesn't:
