    Given the choice, I would probably always choose a SHIMANO cassette over a SRAM cassette ...

    But, you probably won't find a functional difference.​

    Let your wallet be your guide.

    The cheaper SRAM cassettes seem to get better reviews than the expensive ones.

    shimaNO low to mid-range cassettes are dirt cheap, shift well and last as long as any other brand.
