sounds like he rather have it go solid when hitting bump.:)
blow off is for high speed of shaft.when shaft enters body of shock at high 
speed oil it is displacing has to go goes in reservoir.without 
blow off it would hydraulicly lock.think of stock forks with damping 
rod.holes are fixed and you hit speed bump oil can't flow through fast we drill holes and put emulator in.what is emulator?blow off valve 
I take penske over ohshit any time.
go to ohlins site and read how bad their shock is :).they advertise ttx36 by 
telling you what is wrong with previous model.
the new one on gp bikes with no reservoir sounds like good oil 
displacement with shaft,kind like steering damper.
