    3x10 XT vs X9

    hi, I have been considering upgrading my oldie 3x8 drivetrain on my giant anthem. I mostly do off road + climbing. I am sure that 2x10 will be a bit difficult for me at times 'cos of its gear ratio, so have been considering the 3x10 instead. I'd like to ask comments from you guys who have tried 1 of these or both sets and would kindly share your experience.

    1) Does the sram still feel responsive due to its 1:1 actuation ratio, and how about shimano? any improvements in terms of its response?

    2) also, in terms of the rear derailleur movement due to vibration, is sram is still more stable than shimano as i found this clip:

    3) durability?

    Many thanks
