Best fork for Clydesdale MTBr

Two bikes I'm looking to buy...One has a Rock Shox Recon (Air), the other has a Tora (Coil). Just wondering if an air cartridge fork would be a good idea for a guy my size? I'm about 280, and ride pretty aggressive. I've had a Recon coil fork before, and it worked great..

I'd go with coil and change out the spring with the firm or xtra-firm spring kit, depending on your preference.
