Durable and clean shifting.
Discontinued. Design allows the B screw to completely rip through the body of the derailleur if it gets caught on a branch. See pics.
If you can find this unit for cheap, go for it. It shifts as well as the newer models but the larger "foot print" of the derailleur compared to newer units sets it up for getting ripped off by logs and trail debris.
