Whats the verdict on hyperpro vs stelvio?

The Stelvio shock i fitted (early Stelvio) felt slightly less controlled than the original shock both with the standard spring and with a 12Kg/mm spring.

It raised the seat height by about 20mm and had 9mm more stroke (44mm rather than 35mm) giving up to 22mm more wheel movement (depending how soft the bump stop is).

It was also tighter getting the Stelvio shock to line up with mounting bolts as it seemed to be nearly at the lower limit of suspension movement.

Anyway i was after better wheel control so went back to the GRiSO shock and i assume the Hyperpro, Nitron or Hagon would give better wheel control than either.

I didn't have a problem with the function of the Stelvio shock.
But I didn't enjoy the extra height, both at the seat and the change that the extra rear height made to the steering.
No matter what I did at the forks, tyre pressure, etc I couldn't find a happy place.

I got the Hyperpro with stock GRiSO shock length (and optional length adjustment so I could play with incremental height increases).
At first the Hyperpro was too harsh and I thought I'd stuffed up.
After speaking to Pete about it on a trip we did together, I backed off the high speed compression a lot more.
Now I don't give the rear suspension a single thought while riding, which says it all really.
