which shifter??

Looking for a new shifter for my T-5 I had a pro 5.0 in it last time, but I always had a hard time hittin third gear. I think some had to do with the shifter handle bein to far away and im sure there is some driver error in there too. But I was curious what you all would recomend for a shifter, or get another 5.0 and get a better arm that moves it closer?
Thanks

Im running a B&M Ripper right now and like it but Im gonna be putting in a Pro 5.0 when my new tranny is done next week. I drove my buddys car with the Pro 5.0 and it seems alot smoother and cleaner shifts. His has the billet UPR handle on it which makes a big difference.

I've had a pro 5.0, a b& m ripper, hurst competition plus, steeda triax, upr, and probably a few others. I think it's all just personal preference, I really enjoyed the hurst though.

Take a look at the MGW shifter. They have their own website. I know a few that have them, and like them.
