Just got a planet x & found the fork to shutter under medium to hard braking, it's so bad you could almost lose control of the front end & forget about actually stopping since the wheel is bouncing off the ground. Is this just a sexy looking fork that doesn't work?

I have the same problem with my Ritchey Swiss Cross and watched it oscillate back and forth while braking around a sharp switchback today. I think it is a trade between a stiff fork and one that absorbs shock well. My fork is just a road fork but really absorbs the shock. Anyone out there have experience with the Woundup XC fork in these conditions (I may try it)?
