My super Z has the suspension seat which is real nice but I'm also thinking about getting the front suspension ?

Anyone tried the front suspension ?

I just put a set of flex forks on my super z yesterday and they do help the ride a bunch. Don't know how well the mower will mow with them on only time will tell.

"Don't know how well the mower will mow" What do you mean by that ?

Surely it doesn't pop up / down like a car with bad shocks, does it ?

How about it sales Rep ??

I just picked my new Z-Master up yesterday. I got the Deluxe Suspension seat and man I am impressed with the way it supports me. I am a big guy too (250lbs). I just noticed the other guys talking about "Flex Forks", I think I will look into those too.

Where are you getting your seats from. I wouldn't mind paying a higher price for a good seat but I havn't seen one I like yet. The stock seat is about $375.
