Another sram v shimano thread

A friend of mine recently got a new carbon scalpel and wants to swap some parts out. I have a scalpel as well but mine is a bit older. I have Deore XT hydro discs and dual control levers with an xtr front and rear derailluer. I have been curious about SRAM X-9 stuff for my RD. I really like how punchy and quick it feels. Should I buy an X-9 RD and trigger shifters as well as his juicy carbon brakes and levers and swap out some of my Shimano stuff. He also has a Fizik Aliante/ carbon controltech saddle/seatpost combo that he might part with I currently have a thomson elite with a nisene saddle. Thoughts?
