Should I put a XT or a LX cassette ? (Ultegra or DA freehub)(1 post)

Should I put a XT or a LX cassette ? (Ultegra or DA freehub)PeterRider

The XT cassette I was using so far has 2 dead cogs, so I was skipping cogs during 200 miles on saturday. This was highly annoying, and probably no good for my chain.

- concerning weight, XT->300g, LX->330g, not an issue for me
- XT has 5 or 6 rings mounted together, so I cannot change them separately (what annoys me).
- LX has all separate cogs. Is this dangerous for the freehub body ? I'll mount on Ultegra and Dura-ace freehubs. Mostly dura-ace.

Thanks ! I'll post on the mtb board as well if not getting answers here...
