Default Raptor or fox QS3

Hello, got a new 850 coming and I'm trying to decide on raptor's or fox qs3 chris burandt series for the front and back. Has anyone tried both shocks ? Any feedback would be appreciated.

I haven’t had the QS3s but I did have the Burandt Evol R on my 2015 RMK... this last season I had Raptors on my 2016 Axys... imo the Raptors blow the floats out of the water. They’re silky smooth right from the start and not a hassle to adjust. The floats resisted bottoming well and were smooth once you found the right pressures to run, but the Raptors are another step up. Needless to say I’ll have Raptors on my 850 next season, no question.

Haven't ran the Fox but I have run raptors on my last two sleds and there WILL be another set of Raptors on the next 850!!

Default QS3 vs Raptor

Add Rebound adjust or don’t ? What is the benefit?
Can Raptor shocks be revalved?

I have not owned QS3's but have rode them enough to say I prefer the Raptors, I will not say the Fox is a bad shock because it is not. It is actually a really nice shock and you may prefer the air over the spring. The QS3 just has the quick 3 level adjust which makes it nice compared to the one million adjustments on the non. Not needed for our riding.

The Raptor really shines in the nasty, the straight suck up the hits like they are not there. I prefer the spring overall
