Soft Suspension Fork

Any suggestions for a soft suspension fork?
Something that would handle cracks and potholes, and small drops, comfortably and feel soft, like a pillow?

How is the Rock Shox Dart 2/3?
Or the Marzocchi MX Pro?

Looks like the problem has been solved. Poo feels soft and can handle cracks very well.

the only reason i said that ws because the dart 2 is a very soft shock i checked one out about a week ago, and while searched forks i saw someone say that one was soft as poo. but you took it a little too far. it can handle cracks thats gross

Take a look at the Magura Asgard fork. It is plush but not soft with 30mm stanchions and lock out feature if you need it with vary solid feel and minimal flex. It come in 80mm 100mm and 120mm travel, some guy was selling it 2006 model new on ebay for $200 with a shock pump which is a bargain in my opinion for a German made fork. Rock Shox make good forks just not the Dart lineup that you mentioned.
