Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Durable
Quick shifts
Cost

Cons: Lack of snob factor (like I care)
Weight (like I care)

Recommendation: I would recommend these shifters and the X4 rear derailleur as well. Pleasantly surprised at how well they function and how problem free they have been. I have used higher spec X9 and XO equipment on my other bikes and this stuff works almost as well.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Nice and cheap price, durable, well made, acceptable shifting.

Cons: Indexing is a little hard to dial in. I get skipping on my 2nd to the lowest gear/ 2nd biggest cog. Every other gear shifts smoothly except for that gear so I don't think my limits are off.

Recommendation: Except for the annoying skipping issue, I think the x4 is good value for money but if my bike didn't come with it oem I don't think I'll buy it. There are better performing and lighter products out there.

Pros: good price
does its job well

Recommendation: These came on my bike from the factory ah i have no complaints at all. I have the 8 speed version and they shift very smooth and easy.

Pros: Super smooth shifting, great indexing, easy to use.

Cons: Full composite housing cracks easily when hit on barrel adjuster.

Recommendation: All around decent shifter for XC and recreational riding. Pretty good value for the money. Not recommended for downhill, freeride, dirt jumping, or otherwise aggressive riding. A good smack on the ground or tree will destroy this shifter, and if you disassemble this shifter for any reason be prepared to contact NASA for help in re-assembling it.

Pros: -easy downshifts -very reliable, never slips

Cons: -the upshift can sometimes lag unless you have good derailers

Recommendation: it's a great shifter for the price. must be paired with good derailers
