I have a Prophet and like it a lot. It's very tall under the BB so clearing obstacles is very easy. The lefty fork is also very nice. Pedal bob isn't too bad once you get the platform set on the shock. I haven't ridden the Stumpjumer, a fact that I should rectify, but everything I've heard and read has been very positive.
