    compring deore m615 & xt M785

    hi everybodyI want to upgrade my brake gt karakoram 4. got it with tektro novela brake and have a problem chose the right new brake. my rides is pretty aggressive and the problems are in steep decrease don't have good modulation and have to pull very strongly the livers with at list 3 fingers because of it I'm losing my stability and my hands is very tired.I'm looking for brake with a good modulation and good power boost brake.the price is a little bit issue but if it really necessary to invest for the XT I will do it.I'm only interested in the practical issue - not showing my friends the new expensive brakes.thanksofir

    I can brake with one finger on my new generation Deores, XTs and XTRs at 72kg and relatively weak hands.
    Deores do need more squeezing but get the job done.

    Any new opinions on these two brakes?
    Just got a new bike with the 615's and I'm wondering how much better the 785's could be.
