Advice on SC frames

Im lookin into a used SC frame for some trail/dh riding. For the singletracks I go to, I am looking at an 03' heckler frame on atomics....also found a used v10 but may be a bit overkill. wanted any feedback on how the heckler rides as a dh and how it drops.

v10 is overkill...its a dh bike.

Heckler is a do it all bike. From what I hear from people riding them, they are great...good overall geometry. Drops...ummm speed, wheelie how high?...it drops fine. Any bike can drop depends on the rider...

My Heckler rode and handled well, I would recommend it to anyone that does not want to race. I sold it for a bad-ass Trek Fuel though, a difference of 7lbs and worlds faster.

The heckler would be a great bike for the intended use.
