    Spring Tension -- XT vs XTR?

    I know that the Shadow models have stiffer springs, but is there a difference in spring tension between the conventional XT and XTR rear derailleurs? (Note: I'm not referring to the cage/pulley spring, but rather the one in the parallelogram.)

    Thanks!

    The xtr is stronger. I don't know if you will notice a difference. I have stopped buying xtr as they keep costing more and lasting less. xtr can't take a hit, it's all about weight.
