No Better But As Good as Eagle
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Everyone including me has moved to Sram Eagle as Shimano fell behind in the mountain drivetrain world but M9100 is a strong comeback. I wouldn't say it's better than Eagle but it's just as good. The shifter felt firm, maybe a bit firmer, more mechanical than Eagle but in a good way like the 11 speed group many of us remember. Shifting was accurate as Shimano is known for and the wide range is a great upgrade from the old 46t max cog. My favorite bit was this shift lever - I had forgotten how much I liked push-or-pull action of the lever that Shimano has but Sram doesn't.
Overall I wouldn't recommend rushing out and replacing your Eagle drivetrain with Shimano but if it comes down to a drivetrain choice on your new bike you can't go wrong with M9100.
Will this 11 speed shifter work with previous m9000 rear derailleur and cassette?
