the cassettes from the big 3 are the best. not worth headache of the recons of the world, though th recon titanium cassette is very good. their one piece alloy not really good at all
I've had great performance running an alloy 12 speed Campag. Did you try it?

Has anyone tried the rotor 12 speed cassettes with DA 9200?
I'd like to know this, because i'm sure the 11-38 will work with 105 or Ultegra Di2 (not sure about DA), in terms of capacity. Would be nice when walls are in the offing. Supposedly you can't use Shimano 12s chains with them, but I don't know if this is really true. I don't really want to use KMC 12s as they're so noisy. If YBN works well or the no-Shimano-chain is a myth, I'd go for it.

@bencousins, the one piece campy did not last long and i broke a couple of teeth on the cogs.

Bumping this thread to see if anyone else has experience of the Sixwheel cassette? Very tempted to try one on my hill climb race bike instead of DA. I'll be running 1x with di2, if that makes any difference.

Has anyone compared the shifting performance of the Sixwheel cassette directly with Shimano Dura-Ace over a long-term use?

Vastly better than either of my DA cassettes - both were garbage though. Not much different to my 105. Only done about 1500km on it so far though, so too early to say re: durability.
