Damn old fart. Not everyone is single and 40 years old with nothing to spend money on but bikes, beer, and cheap hookers.

Those two are not even in the same league. I go no higher than X7 when I get a rear der, but I wouldn't touch anything less than X7 with SMT's stick...well, you get my meaning.

When it comes to rear derailleurs to smash against rocks when going downhill fast. X7 shifters with an X5 RD might be a better option ie cheaper.

I'd go with X.7. They're solid and cheap. I prefer X.9 shifters, but an X.7 rear mech is great if you're riding real aggressively and don't feel like ponying up alot of cash for breaking one every couple of weeks/months.
