Hi all, would like to hear from those using the XG-1080 cassette... whats your experience with it so far, durability, any issues?

Have done a search on here but could only find the one post, reviews on the web are (not unsurprisingly) mixed with reports of not great durability and teeth bending and or snapping off the 36t cog, apparently due to heat treating issues?

Will be using the cassette on my new "do it all" full suss, full 2x10 speed XO drivetrain, chain will be the PC1091R.... my budget doesnt stretch to an XX cassette, I can get a good deal on a new XG-1080 cassette but i'm also considering the next one down, the X9/PG-1070, despite the weight penalty it seems virtually bombproof from the reviews i've read.

No experience of that one in particular, but generally prefer Shimano Cassettes to SRAM - all round they just last longer as they are completely interchangeable it's not an issue of using it with SRAM other bots.....
