GPR or Scotts?

This is probably a repost.......I seriously hope not.

Weigh in on which one you think is better, and why.

I'm looking at Scotts, but I've had a few buddies who have run GPR and have no complaints. I just want to see if there is anything I might be missing on one or the other and want to hear it from the crazies.......

Thanks in advanced!

-Adam

I like my Hyperpro. All of the above work well (Scotts, GPR, Pit Bull).

The only issue I had when I had a Scotts was that it had to be rebuilt a lot it seems. My Hyperpro hasn't had that issue (yet, knocking on wood).

Thats funny I never had a problem with mine. That is the issue I have heard about the GPR, they needed to be rebuilt quite often.

I prefer the linear, the rotary has a bubble in it.

As far as Hyperpro and their linear vs. progressive. They are both a rod type IE linear. But one is traditional (linear) and one is progressive (meaning it varies in tension dependant upon speed of movement) At least thats what i was led to believe. I prefer the traditional.

Can you tell by the pic which one mine is Keith?

It works like every other damper, has the adjustment wheel on it.

I guess I can look tomorrow for any specific markings when I get home.

I always try to look, but I don't ever notice any AMA or other pro racers using rotary dampers. I always wondered why... you do see the linear piston dampers though.
