    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.

    Pros
    Durable
    Quick shifts
    Cost

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

    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
    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.

    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
    Super smooth shifting, great indexing, easy to use.

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

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

    Pros
    -easy downshifts
    -very reliable, never slips

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