Default 96 buck shaver fork idea's, please.

I have recently restored a buck shaver frame i purchased three years ago. It came with a Judy fork but it seems to be too stiff for me. The bike shop near my house mentioned there are some substandard forks made for a one inch down tube. I would hate to put a cheap fork on such a cool bike. Any idea's of good forks that would work, or where I can get softer springs for the old judy that came with the frame?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Just keep your eye on ebay for good 1" forks. That's what I do
