I've got ~7 years combined use between my two 9point8 droppers \[not the lighter R version\]. No issues. They just keep working. I do love the 1" setback head for the STA slackening ability. 9point8 seems to be the only quality option with a 1" setback. I like the fact 9point8 will sell all the rebuild parts and that I could tear one down and put it back together if I had an issue. That said having replaced a cartridge in an another dropper recently I think that approach is much simpler/easier. Especially if I had to do it at night in a campground post-ride on a road trip so I could ride the next day. We've got PNW, One Up, Bike Yoke droppers in the garage right now as well as having used Reverbs, KS & Crank Bros droppers. In use the 9point8 products work as well as anything else out there and it's pretty rare to get to buy Canadian made stuff in the MTB world so that's a nice bonus.
