Let it be known I also spend a very large portion primarily riding A-line and Dirt Merchant when I'm at the park. I dont weight a lot either and I'm a pretty smooth rider, I rarely break or have mechanicals. Most enduro bikes are pretty slack and seem to continue to get lower and longer.
Smooth meaning you're on DM or ALine for the whips? If you feel the need for speed on those, you will demolish your bike if you ride the days when they're very due for maintenance.
For a few reasons I've spent almost this entire season on Dirty, A-Line, FT, AP, etc. I've had to service it just as much as last year when all of Garbo tech was on the menu. I have a new Capra that I've taken out a handful of times but there's no bloody way it would hold up like the Tues has. That said, I'm in the triple digits.
If you don't want to rebuild your bike constantly and you like to go slow, you'll be good.
