Heavy duty rear shock

Just wondering, I have a 2012 stumpjumper fitted with a triad shock with auto sag. Now I'm a pretty heavy rider 100+ kg and when I'm hitting the trails hard the shock goes full travel. I don't feel it bottom out but it must be pretty close. Is there a better option for a rear shock for my weight of is this ok?

    It's supposed to get full travel, or you might as well not have it.

    I don't think you can replace it with anything else due to the clevis fitting.
    You should be getting close to full travel, otherwise there's no point in having it. 100Kg shouldn't be too much for it, most shocks will be fine with that weight.
