    Broke my Guardian 2.0 Rear Shifter

    The SRAM X5 rear(right) shifter broke on me yesterday. I'm looking to get a replacement under warranty, but if that fails, what do you all suggest? I've been thinking about getting another X5, or possible upgrading to an X7 or X9. I hear the X9s are worth the few extra dollars. As long as I get a nine speed X9 shifter, it should work with my X5 derailer, correct?

    Thanks!

    Broke my Guardian 2.0 Rear Shifter

    I would take the opportunity to upgrade to X7 but X9 isn't worth the extra money. I broke my front shifter and found an X9 for $30 and it feels no different than the X7. Maybe I would notice it more on the rear but it's not enough of a difference for me to make it worth the extra money.
