The Look HSC3 full carbon. I just got one for christmas and was finally able to get it on the road and off the rollers, and I was amazed at the difference from my Profile BRC with carbon steerer and also my old Kinesis Wedge. I know niether of these latter forks are much to compair to, so now I guess I'm playing with he big boys and could not be happier. BTW I weigh in at 195 and had NO PROBLEM with flexiness of this fork. Absolutly solid and super turning response. Also the increased damping of the full carbon
was noticable as well. Great fork...
Love my Look HSC3Wagnerite

I always recommend the AME forks, also called Alpha Q. The are a great lightweight stiff fork.

got my KG281 from totalcycling.com.

for around $1100 i think. was very reasonable. however, there was some problem with the credit card and took a while. after 4 phone call to north ireland later, everything was straighten out. Then the frame was shipped... actually on September 10 and arrived in Kenndy airport on sept 11. so naturally another delay...

very satisfied with the frame tho.
I should mention, for 1100 bucks, i got:

I have Look HSC3 and AME AlphaQ, the Look is good but the AME is much better. In my limited experience with about 7 forks, with the wimpy ones you can easily squeeze the ends between thumb and fingers. The AME hardly moves at all and gives a confident ride
