Shimano Titlist (DB-600)

Shimano Titlist derailleur (DB-600) main image

I am slightly confused about this Shimano Titlist. As I remember it, as the 600 series became more sophisticated - with the launch of the 600 EX (6200) and then the New 600 EX (6207) - the old 6100 design was resuscitated and relabelled as this Titlist.

This example is a short pulley cage version, and the labelling aside, it is exactly identical to the 6100 series of Shimano 600.
