Suntour: Blue Line

Does anyone use Suntour Blue line components? I am currently using VX rear derailluer and a Suntour mountech front. The bike has barcons and a 50-40-28 triple. Would there be any appreciable difference if I were to use the blue line stuff? Accuracy ,smoothness etc. I only ask becuase I have not seen the blue line suntour stuff before.

Blueline was later, probably about the same performance as a fresh VX perhaps better industrial design, got one for cheap NOS, a happy unit, went on bike for wife that has a 14x18. Will keep the Nuovo Record in a box for later.

blueline is a pretty good line of parts, but the Mountech has a much wider range. I dunno if you could get a blue line front to sweep a triple...
