Im using every mm of the travel, which is a shock to me, and Ive even jacked the rear pressure 10% or more over recommended. It feels a bit harsh on smaller fast hits but I think that I can dial most of that out by reducing tire pressure a bit (running 30 now, probably go to about 25).
Have you played around with the number of tokens/volume reducers in your shock? I experienced the same thing with my Kona Process, which has a similar suspension platform, and going from 2 tokens to 2.5 tokens was enough to allow me to run the recommend pressure and reach the bottom of the travel less frequently (although I will say that with either set-up I've never felt a harsh bottom out, but the o-ring on the shock told me I was using all the travel on even mellow trails).
