Most budget brands either are too soft with 32 clicks that do absolutely nothing but placebo effect. Your brain sees you turning the knob to hard, it has to be hard. Find a shock dyno, you’ll see parallel lines with little separation.
Or they’re too hard because the put insanely thick oil in to slow down the shock. Ok from a perfectly smooth track, but hit a bump in a turn and you bounce into the next lane. On the street, your kidneys bleed.
Then you have a properly designed shock that has a nice smooth linear curve at full soft, two lines diverging away and at full hard there is an evident sharp knee exiting low speed rebound...
Find a shock dyno for the two you listed and compare to this.
