My experience with the SunRace cassette \(11-36 10sp _I think_.  May have been 11-40\) was that I bent a few of the cogs within 3 weeks of installing it.  The lockring had backed out on a particularly rocky trail and I hadn't noticed.  This meant the cassette has some lateral play.  I went to throw in a couple of pedal strokes and the chain had bounced out of its correct position, and when it tried to pull the cogs, it bent three of them.  I hadn't done this to a cassette since my days running 9-sp SRAM \(pre x-dome cassettes\).  I used to do that at least once a year before that.  Never had a problem with Shimano cassettes. Given what you say in your article about damaging cassettes, I'll be very interested in reading about your experience on this one.  My bike came with an XO1 cassette that is proving to be very durable.  When the time comes to replace it, this TRS+ cassette will be at the top of my list.
