I have researched this quite a bit and there is no definitive answer to whether this is a good upgrade or not?

I ride my 1999 TW200 mostly offroad, I am 6ft 195lbs and would like a little more height and better response/handling offroad! I picked up a Blaster shock today, just wondering if it is worth the upgrade? I want advice from people that actually have done this MOD and have seat time with said MOD.
