Recon is offering a new alloy 11-28t cassette with improved cog spacing (11t-12t-13t-14t-15t-16t-17t-19t-22t-25t-28t). These are the same cog ratios as the SRAM 1190 cassette. Unlike the Shimano 11-28t cassettes, these include the 16t cog. I have been using the Recon for a while on my Parlee with DA 9150 groupset. The Recon 11-28t weighs 105g, versus 165g for the 11-28t SRAM 1190 and 192g for the 11-28t Shimano 9000 cassettes. On my bike it shifts as well as the 1190, although it is noisier. Also, the Recon is beautifully polished gold or silver. I just ordered another Recon 11-28t for my Seven bike.

With alloy cassettes. The steel ones should be fine.

:? Not really my experience. Not bad, but shifting is not on par with the big 3, and wear is too fast for a steel cassette.
