I'm thinking of upgrading my front derailleur to a shimano XT but not sure which one I would need.
FD-M771 (Traditional pull)
or
FD-M770 (Top swing)

any ideas?

It would help if we knew what bike the derailleur is for.

If you can go for XTR, it's a better part and I've always found it worth it.

On my old man's 2010 EX8 he has a top swing FD.

Why do you want to upgrade a front derailer?

That's what I ended up doing. Paired it with an XT crank, SRAM X9 rear, and XO shifters. Huge diff. in the performance.
