    I have had really good luck with xt rear derailleurs. On my Slayer I use a NSB hanger banger, and that also seems to keep everything running snappy.

    On my Switch I'm on my second X-9 derailleur, the first had the spring that moves the cage (don't know the official name of it) crap the bed with no way to repair other than a whole new derailleur. This bike is my first sram drive train and it hasn't been all rainbows and butterflys.(that bike might get a saint overhaul at some point)

    I'm sticking with good ole shimano from here on in
    it tied the room together man!

    is anyone running a short cage d? I have a 32t single ring up front, maybe this is enough for a short d??? I recall there was a formula to figuring this out.

    The reason I ask is because lately, after rides with a lot of drops and such, my rear d gets all out of whack and needs to be adjusted towards the end of each ride. I'm guessing maybe this is the cause of the longer xt cage I have.

    I'd look at cables housing and cables themselves, first. Derailleurs should not care much if you're dropping or just rolling along.
