I Still have the original PDM kit in my MXZ, except for the Secondary I have a Red Dalton (205-310). Long story short I put that in when I was chasing over gearing with a 150storm track. I got rid of the Storm and now have a 1” Rip2 (135 studs) with 27-46 gearing. Finally got it out today and got it tuned in, pulled ramps 8 times switching weights. I use an XS821 and ended up with 2 1.3’s in the heal and a single 1.7 in the tip.
Hard pack icy trail, pulled 7900 good with this setup, good backshift but an occasional hiccup (nothing serious, might have been icy conditions). Specifically it pulled real hard up top, 114 on dream meter with more left (trail riding in woods of Vermont not many HUGE straights). I am very happy up top with the grunt but It doesn’t have the snap down low I have had in the past with other gearing and clutching setups.
I just pulled the trigger on a set of PDM2's, better bottom 1/3 of ramp pull and rpm? I originally thought between the Red Dalton and my taller gearing was causing the Laziness but it has been brought to my attention it's the xs821.
Now you have me interested in trying one of these belts. I stopped buying $200 571s because I only get 700 miles out of them and then I am dealing with fade, sled has never blown a belt though.
Any updates on WBB?
Sounds like the DBS would be a sideways move?
Thanks, always appreciate your feedback

I believe the dsb would be a sideways move, the wbb383 would be very responsive, it is a hard belt but when squeezed properly runs a fraction cooler than the 571. With 1.1 magnets, and stock sled with pdm 2s I had a really nice shift, super responsive with 4,1,4,3 with 25/45, with 26/45 I pulled the weight out of 2. I think you could also easily go to 190 305 secondary with it and still have great response and backshift. Sorry, no longevity data other than it has held up to about 40 runs from a dig and looks just fine.
