Short Shifter

Sup guys, I'm looking for a short shifter for my 01 GT. Just wondering what everyone has and what they think of it. Isaac, I know you have the B&M, tell me about it. I haven't heard of anyone with the TRD shifter, why is that?

I heard good reviews about the TWM. Never tried it though.

TRD is said to be the best. that's what i am going with. i heard it reduces the throws the most.

Run down on short shifters:

TWM - shortest throw of all, basically sits right above the leather, roughest shifting and most likely to misshift.

B&M - in between TWM and TRD in height, smoothness and misshifting.

TRD - about an inch shorter than stock, smoothest shifting out of the three, least likely to misshift.

There's a way to shorten your stock one about 3/4 inch, I might just do that to save myself the money. That's the run down on the short shifters though, you could get used to anyone of them though in due time.
