I'm sick of the CTD alphabet soup stuff on my Carbine. Never been happy with the way the Float rear shock performed, otherwise I love the bike. I was always really happy with the Vivid Air on my V10, aside from the air part of it. I like the way the new Monarchs feel, but I'm having trouble finding one in stock anywhere...am I crazy for wanting to just put a Vivid R2C coil shock on it? The Carbine is now my only bike, so it sees double duty and I tend to #ENDURO pretty hard on it. I've always been extremely happy running even crappy coil shocks vs the latest greatest air shock fads. Don't say CCDB AIR CS albabet soup either. It costs twice as much, and I really don't care about a 1 lb weight penalty on a 6" travel bike that only weighs like 28lbs to begin with.
