i had a couple USD WB forks - they were quite good (for the era). certainly one of the most reliable forks i've ever run, and decent dampers; lighter & stiffer than a shiver as well.  my xvert carbon was on the other end of the maintenance spectrum - needed a tear down (to clean & lube) pretty much every race weekend, and ended up cracking the lowers. was quite light, and had a good damper, tho.  my (1st gen) monster seals died in fairly short order (amazing the volume of oil that can puke past seals on a big open bath fork; i recall seeing people with rags tied to their monsters to catch the flow), and the upper crown broke; otherwise was a good-ish fork?  i can just go on. we old guys do like to wax nostalgic from our rocking chairs.
