      This up grade provides the features that ensued i have no buyers remorse. Double up and triple down are nice to have and the push or pull option on the down shift are great.

              Comments about Shimano XTR M980 Shifter:

              I needed to replace my old shifter after I damaged it in a crash. For me an upgrade from the stock SLX shifter to the XTR was a no brainer. If you have even the slightest dissatisfaction with your lower end shifter feel safe in knowing the change is worth the price.
              I'm the type of rider who always seems to be in the wrong gear at the wrong time. this results in a lot of shifting under load. No longer am I am stuck walking my bike up hills because I can't transition through the gears quickly enough.
              The gear changes are very snappy and precise. you won't be disappointed with this purchase.

              Went with non Ispec just in case I needed the braze on. Pay attention if your brakes are Ispec compartible. They did not take much space on handlebar . Upgraded from X9 shifting, what a difference, to easy, smooth shifting.

                Comments about Shimano XTR M980 Shifter:

                I decided to spend the extra $$ to get the most out of my XTR rear derailleur. My prior SLX shifter couldn't handle the tension of the derailleur and would skip or overshift in the mid gears going up or down. This puppy works perfectly. It's almost too soft compared to my SLX so I have to get used to tapping it instead of pressing. I'm happy.
