Short Shifter Advice
So, Im buying myself a short shifter for my birthday sometime this week.

I need some testimonials to see what people have and what they think of it. I know its TRD, B&M and TWM, those are my three options. Any more worth looking at? I drive my car ALOT, I am getting tired of rowing gears, I want something stiffer, with less throw, but at the same time I still want a smooth shift (does that make sense?)

I have an 02 GT.

Thanks in advance for all your help guys.

I think TRD only makes one for the GTS, I'd go w/ B&M thumbsup

TWM is the shortest height and throw wise.

i installed the b&m about a month ago and i think it's great.

TRD-taller and smoother
b&m-middler height and notchey
twm-shortest and rougher shifting

I heard the B&Ms are kinda sketchy on build quality and that they break sooner than a TRD or a TWM. I don't have an SS myself yet, but I was seriously considering the TWM for my GTS simply because I heard it's the best of the three...

TWM. short, firm, precise.

I don't know where people get all this bullshit about the shifts being rough...mine's great.
