Quality Part
I upgraded to this from an old X7 derailer and it shifts so much smoother and quicker than my old one. It was also very easy to install and setup.

PROS: Easy to setup, Smooth shifting

Quality SRAM component
I replaced my Shimano drivetrain with the SRAM x9 based on reviews and frustration of inconsistent shifting. I'm so happy that I did. The SRAM shifting is much more crisp, accurate, and consistent. When I later purchased my roadbike, I was sure to buy the model that had SRAM components.

PROS: Great Price For High End, Love Accurate Shifting, Crisp Shifting, Takes a beating

snappy shifter
I swapped this one in place of my long cage after going to a 2X9 setup.
What I like about this derailer is that it is very crisp in shifting and has held up to quite a bit of abuse so far.

PROS: Precise

X.9 = super smooth
Didn't buy my rear derailleur at Jenson, but found a similar deal a few moths ago, installed it and combined with the x.9 shifters, new shimano deore xt CS-M770 cassette, deore M590 Crankset and the existing Deore front derailleur my shifting is 100% more smooth and efficient. Makes riding my '11 Trek Mamba a joy to ride compared to the shoddy x.4/x.5 and low grade shimano crank/cassette that came stock on it. Worthy & worthwile upgrade!

PROS: Solid build, Best bang for the buck, Smooth shifting, Great price

Smooth shifting, solid construction
This is classified as a mountain bike component but I'm using it on a Cannondale hybrid that I've made into more of a flat bar road bike. I ride mostly paved bike trails, and although this der will take some pounding, it provides very smooth shifting at all speeds.

PROS: Precision Shifts, Great Appearance

BEST USES: Hybrid, MTB

Best value in the SRAM line
X9 is by far the best value in the SRAM line up. After destroying my sprockets on a climb the first month i rode this RD, SRAM did warranty the derailleur and get me another one. Im guessing the one i got was defective because i've put about 500 miles on the new one without any issues of slipping. I have an X0 setup on my new Ride but the X9 was half the price with just a little compromise in performance. Saving money means being able to buy other toys :-)

PROS: Shifting, Easy of use, price, Weight

CONS: Sprockets

Shhhh, its quiet.
My ride buddy heckles me all the time. One point is my noisy clattery bike. He has picked up the pace on occaison to hear himself think. Haha. He runs a Medium cage and I had a long. I gave in once again... And once again, he's right. I had a bit of chain slap going on with my X9 Long cage and the Medium seems to have brought some of that under control. This X9 is just as snappy a derailleur as my other, so no worries there. Good upgrade.

PROS: Cuts the chatter

CONS: i had to pay for it, Why can't things be free

BEST USES: Quiet a noisy bike, All mountian

A difference you can feel
I have had several Sram X deralures all the way from x4 x5 x7 and now this new x9. I have also had my share of low end to middle of the raod shimano offerings and I can say without a doubt that sram has the best line up over the whole range. I put 600 miles on a new deore and it wouldn't shift right any more no matter what I did to adjust it. I replaced it with a used x7 and it was like the clouds broke and all my shifting problems were gone for good. For my new build I chose this x9 and I can't say enough good things about it. While I have never had any real problems with any Sram deralure I have used, I must say that this x9 has a feel of quality that makes me smile every time I shift and I love how quiet I am going through the forest without all the chain slap that my shimanos had.

Super Reliable
This derailleur has taken a beating, but still shifts fast and smooth. It does have a loud ka-klonk when shifting, but is always accurate.

PROS: Fast, Accurate

CONS: Loud

is there a clutch?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No clutch. This is the older style that works with the 1:1 actuation. I'm using it with Gripshift and it is as good as my XO 10 speed that does have a clutch. I believe that X9 can be had with a clutch in 10 speed only. Hope that helps.
Which cage: Short, Medium or Long?
Which is best fit for the SRAM PG-990 9 Speed Cassette in a downhill application?
08 TR Blindside on Sep 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how many teeth the cassette is.
I just added an 11-40 cassette but the xo long cage that I have won't allow enough b-spring movement even with a longer screw. Which derailleur should I get? it's a 3x9 btw.

BEST ANSWER: The 9 speed derailleurs I believe will only go up to a 11-34T max. If you are planning on running 11 speed derailleur you'll need at least a GX 11 speed rear derailleur and a SRAM 11 speed Exact Actuation shifter, or go with a Shimano 11 speed system. Call or chat us if you need some help!
