Firstly, I have been most impressed by the speed of Merlins standard free delivery as I have ordered purchased 3 of these cassettes separately and have received them within one or two days of ordering.
Secondly, at this price, the PG980 cassette offers great value for money, as it is a better quality cassette at entry level prices, and although I probably get slightly better changes from my XT cassette the difference cannot be justified by the extra cost. A real bargain for those who still run 9speed on their touring bike.
Good cassette, smooth gear change and light
Light and hard wearing and for the price a fantastic cassette. Works well with the PC991 chain.
This is either my 3rd or 4th one of these.
Faultless performance on the mountain bike with XT drivetrain - shifts cleanly every time.
I've even used it on the road bike for a very hilly sportive with Ultegra drivetrain (cheaper than swapping to a compact crankset for a 1-off event).
I purchased 4 of them, it's a good mid-price cassette and the price for this item was very good...
I now run these on 4 bike builds so if that isn't praise enough I don't know what is.
