The Best Suited Fork

Im looking to upgrade my stock fork for a good all round one including: drops, trails, road and jumps. Also the best fork for the dollar as well. I was told to go with marzocchi but there are so many to choose from. Any input would be appreciated.

Thank you for the complete lack of information regarding yourself (ie height, weight, and riding style), your bike and what you actually expect performance wise. This will make it amazingly simple to deduce precisely the correct fork for your needs. What makes it even better is the fact that you didn't even state a budget.
This thread reminds me of those people who call the shop because they have a "clicking noise" and expect me to diagnose it over the phone.

Performance wise just want something that can handle everyday riding as well as aggressive trails, drops and jumps. (Good All Round)

Budget: Between $200 $400. I dont mind spending the money if its worth it. Just want something to suit my needs. Thanks again
