I've got a 18' Smuggler that is "overshocked",swapped the Fox 210x50 with a CCDBiL Coil 210x55 to get another 12mm of travel.Kind of a Mini-Sentinel with the fork bumped to 150.With the stock setup I was beating myself up, like Dave said "absolutely worked".Now the bike feels awesome and I don't think it feels "dead" at all. I think a 50mm stroke coil shock would run out of travel before the spring rate can rise enough to prevent bottom outs without over-springing.I did install a big/soft bottom out bumper but it wasn't needed.
