Dt Swiss 54t ratchet upgrade, worth it?

I've been on the OEM DT Swiss 54T for about 2 years now and I think it's worth it - never failed either. The buzzing noise is light and helps with hikers on the trails. I've also used the 36T for about 3 years on my bike park wheels, beating the hell out of it - never once failed.

As others have mentioned, the 36T upgrade is probably ~85% as good as the 54T in terms of pedaling..

I've also used the 18T for a season - I actually like this one, it's silent and has the least amount of drag out of all of them. But hikers and animals will not hear you.

I'd stick with the OEM version, paying a little bit more is worth it based on some of the pictures and reviews I've seen on the Chinese version. And don't over-grease the ratchets, a little goes a long way. I actually use freehub oil instead!
