OK, so here is the deal. After cruising the MTBR reviews of damn near every brake system listed, i still cannot decide what to go with. My current brakes are hayes HFX9-HD's. I like that they are powerful, and a very simple, reliable design, they never overheat. What i do not like is that the modulation is very lacking. Its pretty much either locked up, on pretty hard, or off. What i am looking for in a brake system is more modulation control, so i can do a nose manual without eating crap every time i get up a ways. Its just not happening with the hayes. I would go with the hope M6's, or the saint, but i see alot of reviews saying that they get inconsistent performance. I do not want a brake that will crap out on me on a steep downhill when i need it most. If this means staying with the hayes, so be it. I would just like opinions from people of what they think of their brake systems, pluses and minuses. Im going to be using it for FR/DH. Thanks, Grizzle.
