Anyone know if there is any significant difference between 2011 x7 and x9 9spd shifters? My x7's seem sluggish and difficult to operate. Any suggestions before buying a set of 2011 x9's? My rig is pretty much brand new and shifter/cable operated smooth with rear der. removed.

Not a tremendous difference between X7 and X9, I've had both and currently run X7 10 speed stuff, all 2011, and it works great. I had no discernable difference riding them back to back honestly.
I'd check the tension in your cable to the der, make sure your lines are clean, etc. before swapping shifters.
