    X7 vs X9 type 2 RD

    Has anyone got hold of the new X7 Type 2 Rear Derailleur yet? I'm wanting to switch to the clutch type and would be keen to hear opinions on the difference of the two-Cheers

    I have a x9 type 2, (10 speed cassette) on one bike and a x7 non type 2 (9 speed) on another bike. The only difference I can find is the x9 is quieter on the downhills. Not much difference in the shifting response. The lock out feature on the type 2 is nice. If the price was close, id go for the x9 that being said.
