Any Difference Between Marzocchi MX Comp and MX Pro?

It seems the Marzocchi MX Comp and MX Pro are the same shock but the MX Comp received higher review points. Is there any difference between the two?

With no facts here what so ever, i am going to say they are not the same. Otherwise they both would be called MX Pro or MX comp. Again I am pulling this out of thin air, I imagine the pro has different adjustments or is possibly air while the comp has a spring? Adjustments would be a safe guess. Comp is usually "lower" on the food chain.

Well you clued me in to just looking for adjustment differences and that's what it is. MX Pro has an external rebound adjustment while the Comp is an internal adjustment only. I think there might be some slight different travel settings as well but they are not significant enough to go through and I might be wrong anyway. I guess the Comp received higher reviews because it is so much cheaper then the externally adjustable Pro version (up to $100 difference).
