    Sram PG980 cassette on AL freehub??

    So I've decided to get a set of Sun Ringle Black Flag Pros. Only consistent problem I've read about is cassettes biting into the AL freehub body. It's recommended that you run a full spider cassette like the Sram PG990. I'm currently have a 980 that still in good shape which has only the largest three gears sharing a spider. Will this be enough to avert any major damage to the freehub body? Or do I need to bite the bullet, break the bank, and get a new pg990 while I'm at it too? I'd rather not if I can avoid it, but I also don't want to damage a set of wheels that I'm dropping several hundred dollars on either.

    I have hope hubs with an aluminum body and I use the pg 980 no problem. With that said I've seen the pg 990 on chainlove recently for around $50.
