It's clearly a messy business all this cross-legacy clamp matching.

Anyway, Andy B, you're a star
No problem

Yup all manufacturers using different standards makes it a right pain in the ass

which fits hfx9's?
i mean how different can split clamps be?
Can't see an integrated clamp on the Hayes website, dunno if any other manufacturer does 'em

I'd guess that the Sram ones will only fit Avid brakes seen as Avid are part of Sram

Guess even if a clamp has the bolt holes .5mm different to another clamp it's enough to make it not work correctly

If you can find an integrated clamp with the same distance between the bolt holes it could work, provided the clamp covers the same radius as the regular clamp

OK, these are 30mm dead. So, what do we reckon, Avid or Hope? Though I recall being reliably informed they are Hope.
