issues with my manitou black fork

I just got a 2004 stumpjumper I really like the bike but the fork is a bit rigid for my style and weight (225lbs). its gotta go. I recently put a rockshox 2001 psylo xc on my wife's bike and upgraded it to u-turn capabilities. should i trade with her or or wait to by a fox talas or trade until I can afford to grab the talas 2005.

the black felt fine when I test rode it but after a while the action was'nt as smoothe the psylo race on my hardrock.

suggestions

Maybe look at a Talas or Vanilla... super plush and long travel.
