The X0 guide is made by MRP, and they don’t hide that fact – it’s essentially a rebranded G2 SL. It makes sense to have MRP’s vast guide-making experience go into the X0 offering and it’s a massive improvement on past Truvativ guides. It’s a lot sleeker and a lot lighter, and functions to the high standard of any MRP device.
Setting it up seems to require more spacers than other guides. Although performance initially seemed good, over long-term use, we’ve broken the bottom guide a little too easily, more than once. It’s also louder than is needs to be.
