I too backed X-shifter (new name coming) with a view to using it on a 3x11 Red22 system for the Hydro brakes component and smart mapping of the shifts to get the close ratios I crave. Due to delays I went 2x11 using a SRAM FD with yaw and a short cage RD as I run 10-25. with same side timing chain. The 2x11 is working as expected, the X-shifter might improve shifts under load but not much more. Although I could conceivably add the 13 that is missing on my cluster and do 12 speed like that.
That's too funny. Yeah, I think the X-shifter could be a big help for the franken-gear setups that tandems can end up with. Thanks for your help. I'll report back on the build once I get all the parts.
