    SLX vs. XT Dyna Sys Shifters

    The only difference between the two that I see are:

    SLX: No instant release but still has multi shift
    XT: Instant release

    SLX: Levers a bit shorter than XT

    SLX: $40 less than XT

    Are there any material differences (more plastic, less metal) or manufacturing differences (casting vs. machining or ??) to make up the $40 difference?

    $9 difference? i'm actually not sure what reg. retail price is on both since i've been searching ebay but SLX/LX and XT lines are usually much more price diff than that.

    what was the price you saw for both lines?
