Yes, you feel it a bit sticky, but it's just an extra-low-speed damping. If Bos has the same damping as the other brands you don't feel nothing. It's for that you don't feel it when you ride ;)
The weight of my Idylle is 7,24 (3kg280) with 220mm steerer and rubbers. It's more than other forks...
...the BOS Idylle Rare have an hydraulic bottom out bumper and you can change the piston position to 160/170/180 or 190mm. Have you seen an elastomer bumper in MX Fork ???:blink: Elastomer is cheap and just here to stop the feeling of bottoming....with a good hydraulic you don't bottoming so...

When i say progressive it's to say more progressive, same a steel spring who...
No :) with force you can calculate the different pressure, and with volume, you can calculate the modification :pirate2:
my mod is not just super glue. i made a new valve kit. Reduce the volume is not the best choice ;)
I buy a 2008 totem, it's a very good fork. However, i feel the fork sensitive but very linéar. It's difficult to keep a correct travel in very hard downhill without more presure...and more presure is less reactivity. When i test steel spring version, there is no-problem, big reactivity...
