    I know them

    but there are 3 models for the TLS:
    S56 : keep the OEM SOAS , compression and rebound coupled
    S109 : spring and shock (like TLR) compression and rebound coupled
    S109B : like S109 but high and low speed compression (rebound) separated

    link :


    It seems EMC don't sell the S56 (old type)

    I own one, and as far as I never rode with the rotary, I can only say that is good...
    No problem so far
    But the model I have requires that you keep the original spring.
    it is a good balance.

    from that link the cheaper one is over 500 squid new - depends on the condition and where it comes from I suppose..
    Personally I think 50 to 100 quid less may be more appropriate for a secondhand unit - after all you might need a re-build in 6 months...

    A brand new Hagon is 100 quid less...
