The light action of shimano's shifting has always been a draw for me as well as their ergonomics. Light and crisp shifting. The double upshift is great when cresting a climb to move across the cassette to a descending gear. The textured shift levers are grippy and give you a sense of security when shifting.
There is some play in the shifter levers because they are made of plastic would prefer a metal body and lever for a bit more solid feel. Currently you are unable to get rid of the gear indicator which is kind of silly.
I am a die hard shimano fan but this shifter fell a bit short for me.
