differences between fox and ion

I know that there different brands but I would some times come across treads when people would talk about the socks. What are they designed intentions?

fox has progressive and icon has digressive valving.
progressive is firmer the harder you push them, digressive is softer the faster you push them.
both are quality shocks.

Would it make sence to have front fox rear ion ? I have fox right now 2.5 with the res a d I was just wondering If I'm hauling ass on a bump trail with dip and pot holes with would be sufficient?

IMO icons makes superior midtravel, but fox is a very good company too. Speaking from personal experience with icon, I'm running full icon front and rear and the front has handled some very haggard stuff off road. They ride like a dream on the road too.
Midtravel: icon
Long travel: king or fox
