    Proshift rear derailleur... setup?

    Some of you are using this derailleur so I am hoping to get some feedback. I have just aquired a Precision Billet "proshift" rear derailleur (new with directions). I have spent over an hour trying to get this thing to shift properly. The cassette and chain are also new.

    My XTR takes 10 minutes to setup. What am I doing wrong or are these derailleurs just poor shifters and that`s why they went out of business?

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Mine shifts very well, but I have mine running with twister shifters. Maybe if you have some of these lying around try them out. The stories of this derailleur not shifing well are aplenty but I took a chance and mine is working out great.
    If in doubt - pedal harder!!!
