Hmmm, Trail Gear R&Ps, eh? I understand the Yukons I got are junk, wonder what the Internet Illuminati must think about Trail Gear.

In all honesty, I'd be skeptical unless you knew who was making them. Probably best to stick with known names, Precision, Yukon, Genuine, etc. Good or bad, at least people can give you actual experiences and you know which marks to look for to know if the R&P is a good set or not.

I'm with UB

Secondly, Yukons are rebranded other gears.

Get precision or US gear, and never worry about it. Other brands are fine too, but have had quality issues from time to time.

Yukons are OK, I prefer Precision. As Christo already mentioned......Yukons are Randy's Ring and Pinion house brand and Precision is Reider Racing house brand gears. More likely than not they are probably cut at the same gear cutter but are made to the customers specifications.

Yes! You can search up a lot of opinions and stories so I will let you draw your own conclusions but Chris is a climber and he doesn't care who or how he has to find the next step higher! Marlin barely survived Chris' step up by the shear loyalty of his devoted friends and customers!

Very true! They are extremely consistent in tolerances!
