Rock Shox Dart 3 vs. Marzocchi MX Pro

Hey guys. First off let me say that i own a hardrock. It used to have an aging Marzocchi MZ fork until I replaced it with a rigid fork earlier this year. I don't like the rigid fork as much as I thought i would so I'm going to go back to suspension.

At 6'6" 250 lbs, is the Marzocchi MX Pro ($200) worth the extra $100 over the Rock Shox Dart 3 ($100)?

You are probably like, "WTF is this guy thinking??? He's waaayyy to big for those forks." Well My old stock marzocchi mz fork that came with my hardrock did just fine for me for 2-3 years until it started to show it's wear.

If I can get another 2-3 more years of light XC riding out of this fork, I'll be happy.

So should I just save my money and get the Dart 3 if this is all I'm looking for? Or do you think the zocchi is REALLY worth the extra $$$**********

Thanks a lot!
