Totally a theory here, but I think a lot of the benefit people get from volume spacers is the increased rebound speed from deeper in the stroke. If you run a lot of forks totally linear, at least those I've tried, I've found that the return speed is way too slow and overdamped. It seems like the rebound circuits are being tuned assuming some spacers in place, but when they aren't there, the fork returns too slow and you have to either increase air pressure or progression late in the stroke to improve it (or retune). Personally, I'd rather have a more linear air spring like with the IRT on the Mezzer and a faster rebound from deep in the stroke. I feel like it provides a better feel, improved tracking, and better ride height than running the fork sitting into it's travel with a ton of tokens.
