More opinion required than advice.

I'm looking at swopping my hardtail (hitman) for something with a bit of bounce to it. I'm no good on dirt jumps and can do anything else I do locally on my 223, but when I go further afield to places lke Grizedale and Llandegla I want something more XC than DH.

My options are

1) get a 5 and beef it up abit.
2) get a patriot and put it on a celeb diet. (starve it)

I can't skimp on quality so has to be and Orange and I can't skimp on luxury so it has to be an Orange full sus.

Thought's please.
