I am 250lbs and often load up the bike.
Picked up a Progressive rear shock for $300 and it has been on the bike for about 2 years now. Been very happy with it - good value for the money.
That being said I am not a very aggressive rider but Bluelightning has ridden my Strom and about my size and really liked the setup.
If money is an issue it is probably a very good alternative value wise.
If I were in the market now I would look at the Progressive, Ricor, and Cogent Dynamics rear shocks as a value type replacement.
