The shifter is great. Its very smooth, not as notchy as the UUC SS, the throw seems to be about the same, but the shifter it taller. Which I like cause you hand doesn't have to drop as far from the wheel to shift. Its also the perfect hight inline with the armrest. Its also easier to shift then the UUC SS, less effort. It also has no SS Bearings that can blow. I'll let everyone know how I like it once its broken in with 500 miles.
