    Hayes HFX Mag XC 6 or '05' HFX9 Carbon or '05' HFX9 XC

    I am looking at purchasing a new set of Hayes Disc brakes for my XC bike.
    I am choosing between
    (1) Hayes HFX Mag XC 6"
    (2) Hayes '05' HFX9 Carbon 6"
    (3) Hayes '05' HFX9 XC 6"

    Could others with some experience of these brakes give me some feedback on pros and cons between them?
    I am well aware of the grub screw thing as I am upgrading from the so1e's.

    TIA

    I have the hfx9's and myself and a lot of people have had rubbing issues with these brakes. I would look into the mag . . .
