Sorry, I have been asking to many things about this cassette, but which one is better? Because I need to find out soon whether I should ask Bob from StaffBMX to special order the Rant V2 Cassette in LHD. So, which one should I choose? The Raptor is $40 less but I think the Rant may be worth the extra $40.

I just got the raptor from staff-bmx.
I have an older friend that jams like no other. he told me it has held up for quite a while.
It seemed impressive

raptor is louder and lighter, and would shadow really make a hub that wasnt an improvement to the old one?

^what this guy says^ Invert pawl systems are hard to fuck up and make tons more noise with 12 points of engagement haha.(especialy if you take out the rubber silencer)

The weight differenc is basicly none existant. Unless your some wieght weenie that fails a 360 hop for every half ounce thats added to ur bike. Grow some fucking nuts.

I'd gow with the rant mainly because i havent done anything but lube it for the past 2 in a half years.

Its not 12 pawls... its 12 points of engagement. It still has 6 pawls, but its put into the hub inverted. So.... instead the pawls are already inside the hub rather than on the driver and the driver has teeth. WTP also makes a hub like this. It all makes tons more sense when you actualy look inside one of those hubs.
