I guess there are lighter RDs out there, but you sure can save a lot of $$ for a few extra grams. This thing has worked perfectly for me...no dropped chains, and I was surprised how quiet an MTB rides without the chain bouncing around. I ride a 1x setup, so the clutched RD is the only way to go, but even for a 2x or 3x setup lost chain slap is a huge improvement.

Will not work with 9 sp shifter

Thought this RD would work with a 9 sp shifter. It doesn't.

    Comments about Shimano Deore M615 Shadow Plus Rear Der:

    Cant beat this price. Clutch works great, between this and a NW chainring, ive never dropped the chain. Runs quietly and shifts smoothly. Cant possibly think of any reason to spend more when this kind of quality is available at this price.

            Was very easy to instalL. Used with a new chain, shifter and rear cassette. Does not have a fine adjustment screw. Don't know if it will be needed later on once it starts to wear in. So far I have not needed to use the clutch while riding 1x and using a narrow wide chain ring. So far working really well.

                This is my second dynasys 10 speed derailleur, but this one comes with the patented clutch feature. Although I've yet to use the clutch, I haven't dropped a chain once, the springs hold the chain nice and tight by default - I own the medium cage. I love the gray/black color scheme, it shifts extremely well with the ZEE shifter.

                  This may be a bit heavier but shifts about the same as my SLX shadow plus. All Shadow+ RDR's need maintenance by lubing the clutch regularly with a special Shimano grease (recommend this over others to keep it smooth) and in my opinion, it's worth the effort. Chain slap is well controlled.
