    10 Speed 11-46 Options

    Going from 2x10 to 1x10. Want to upgrade my 11-36 cassette to a Sunrace 11-42 or 11-46.

    My drivetrain is an x9 shifter / x7 derailleur combo.

    Read that 11-42 should be no problem with my current setup.

    Less clear on 11-46 options.

    Seen some say that an 11s GX derailleur will accommodate 11-46.

    Would an 11s NX also work with 11-46?

    I assume the answer is "yes" since I hear the GX works but I haven't seen anyone explicity say the NX will work with 46 and SRAM website says 42 max.

    Also, read that Shimano 10s derailleurs don't accommodate 11-42 naturally but will with an extender link. That got me thinking... any chance I can pair my x7 derailleur with an extender link to get it up to 11-46?

    When I inquired about my NX 11 spd working with a 46 cassette the response was yes. Not sure if you're trying to see if your 10 spd shifter will work on the 11 spd NX derailleur(I know Shimano SLX/XT 10 spd shifts their 11 spd derailleurs nicely) or if you're thinking to go all in 11 spd components for your drivetrain upgrade.
    Wait whuuut, who did he tell you that!?!?....
