Smooth shifting. Durable and easy to dial in.
Discontinued. A little chain slap. Updated XTR RDs have a lighter feeling shift and also come with roller clutch design.
If you can still find one of these, go for it! I've had one in use for 5 years and it still shifts like new. They used to cost an arm and a leg but it sure has made up for that in durability and performance. Other than the chain slap, this unit has easily exceded my expectations.
