    Great shifters, haven't had a problem yet.

    Pros
    Triggers out of your way
    Top trigger can be pushed forward or backward
    no bulk

    Cons
    Brake lever cannot slide over all the way by the shifter like some setups. (Not a huge deal)

    They can take a beating as the bike they are on has been ridden and abused and they still have a solid smooth action. I like the Deore line personally.

    Pros
    - can take a beating
    - smooth action solid feeling
    - light

    Cons
    - mine only shift in one direction, they are older though... so a 4 out of 5

    A bit faster than the previous setup I had, so I like this setup. The previous owner hand not used the bike often, so it has taken some WD-40 and use to get the thumb shifters back into easy movement. A great shifter set.

    Pros
    Fast shifting
    Consistent

    Cons
    Will stiffen up if not lubed in regular intervals, nothing a little WD-40 can't fix

    I'd buy another pair if I wanted to set up another 9 speed drivetrain.

    Pros
    Smooth shifting even after 4 years of use. Decently rugged and shifts in both directions (thumb thumb and thumb forefinger).

    Cons
    Wont work with most SRAM RDs but what did you expect?

    Great shimano triggers. Still prefer SRAM shifting as it is in my opinion more crisp.

    Pros
    Light. Love the 2 way release.

    Cons
    Not a fan of shimano shifting. Not bolt action quick as SRAM.

    Upgraded from Deore along with XT Shadow deraileur. Great upgrade. they shift smooth and have snappy trigger response. And Xt is almost as good as XTR, costs a fraction of the price, and doesn't weigh much more. I got the black ones, they look sweet....

    Pros
    Smooth shifting, light weight, durable, reliable

    Cons
    none...
