To all users out there, is this a fair match for XTR 950 / 960 grey? Have you used them together?

The hope gun smoke is like pewter in comparison to M952 xtr rear mech I've got here, which is much duller.

I've not got any XTR 950/960 but I would say no as the Hope gunsmoke has a blue ish tinge, closer I'd say to M570 LX.

Thanks the 960 has a bluish tinge, maybe I should just buy a spacer and compare. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Great match for m570, but definitely not for m950 I'm afraid :( As mentioned it's much more blue than grey.

Thought we'd lost you to the darkside but this sounds like you're on the build again...? :)
