    Need new shimano brakes

    Im after some new brakes, going to go with shimano this time as ive heard lots of good things.
    just looking for some opinions/comparisons between the current xt's (m775), the 2012 xt's and the xtr trails (m988)

    they will be going on a 2011 giant reign x0 frame that i built up...style of riding, mostly FR but everything from xc to shore to dh.
    thanks

    Great Pick Bro... All my bikes... I had Shimano XT- 2009 / 2010 / On my latest Bike Santa Cruz TallBoy... Went with the new XTR trail brakes... Best brakes I have ever had !!! Amazing stopping power... Great, Great, Great brakes... Really digging the smaller brake levers too... The XTR are worth the extra $$$ Trust me...
    2011 Santa Cruz TallBoy carbon & 2013 TallBoy LT carbon - S/C All the Time !!!
