X9 shifter w/ XTR

Is it possible to use x9 shifters with any shimano derailleur. I'm wanting to swap out my shimano dual controls w/ x9's but don't want to pay for a new derailleur. This is probably a dumb question but I'm confused on the whole 1:1 thing. Thanks for the feedback.

No. Shimano = 2:1 and SRAM = 1:1


Not compatible.

or you could just buy a SRAM X7 derailleur for about 35 dollars at jensonusa.com

I use sram rocket triggers, and I used to have the rocket shorty barrel shifters. They are exellent. The rocket are the same as X.9, and the attack are the same as the X.7. The only differences are the materials. I went with the rocket, because they are shiney, and im a loser like that.



cheers

It's never a waste of time or money if the person enjoy's doing the work.
