Dampers: Which one?

If you had to choose between a Hyperpro or GPR, which one would you go with? I really want a Scotts but the extra $175 smacks for the mounting bracket blows.

Thanks ahead for the advice.

I went with the Hyperpro for cost, looks and a group buy. Additionally I don't care for the external pivot on the Scott that requires grease on it....attracts dirt.

I got a Hyperpro RSC for a bargain.
No complaints with it, but had it not been for the really great price I would have gone Ohlins.
Can't go wrong there, Kawi even went with Ohlins stock for 06.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
