Strengths:    These are almost bulletproof.
i've had them over two years and no problems.


Weaknesses:    In my other bike i have x-9 twisters with x-9 reard., and i have to say that compo feels better than this x-9/XTR...
Its not this product, maybe its the ratio 1-2?


Bottom Line:   
Good product if you really want to use twisters with Shimano deraill., but otherwise pick something else....
