Is there any difference to these two calipers ?
I have both and comparing them they look totally identical. I've weighed them also and they both come in at 100.4grms.
The only difference i can actually see between the two brakes when the levers are fitted is the lever pivot.The saint looks to be slightly different :?

Anybody know about such things and would care to comment? Im interested in what the differences if any are and if there is no difference then were they the same retail price :?
Ill do some pics later on of them side by side so you can see they do pretty much look the same.

I can't remember there being any difference...the levers and callipers of Shimano LX, XT, Saint and XTR were all interchangeable.

The Saints were supposed to be more powerful, but having tried them and XT's I couldn't tell any difference.
