I had a thudbuster (longer travel one) on my Xizang for years - loved it. You get used to the feel v quickly. It eats up small bumps well - hit a big bump sitting down and it will catapult you to standing where you should have been anyhow. I sold it with the bike but wish I'd kept it. I bought a second one for the stoker on my tandem.
You should carry a spare elastomer with you - they can split with age (over 5 years in my case) leaving the post unusable. (Luckily when mine split I managed to find the split elastomer and ziptied it all up to get me home). Try it - start with the heaviest elastomers
