    Are Mag's better then Nines?

    I have a set of Nines right now, but one of the levers is wreked, so I found a good deal on a used set of compleat f&r Hayes Mag's

    Am I better off with the Mags or the Nines, I know the problems the Nines have, but I don't know anything about the mag, are they very different?

    Mags are better, better modulation.

    And don't take that deal away from me, I am going for that 269 deal myself

    Yes they both use a Hayes G2 caliper, so hang on to the old ones. The big difference is in the master cylinder design with the Mag being the better of the two.

    I used to have nines and my new bike has the mags. The mags have better modulation and they feel more comfortable to use.
