Quick Shifts good or bad?

I've been thinking about fitting a quick shift gear lever on my 94 import wrx wagon.

The reason is basicly i don't like the feel of the standard gear change it seems a bit hitty/missy when changing gears.

So i thought i'd ask you guys at the .org for your experiences with quick shifts,good or bad?.
would fitting a quick shift cure this problem or make it worse?

so please tell me your ideas & thanks for helping me.

I personally dont like aftermarket shifters. They feel too tight; and its hard for me to tell if its in gear or not. You could always try one out. You might like it.

I have a Kartboy quick shift and think it is a great improvement over the standard shifter

i've got a graham goode racing quick stick on my classic, i love it. would probably be the first mod i'd do if getting a new car. when driving cars without, it feels like the stick moves yards. transforms the hands on feel of driving in my opinion.
i got it off flea-bay, just a metal post with a big bend in it.
however, it is quite stiff and took a while to get used to, but i would not be without now. i'm not sure if anyone wants to correct me on this but with the classic scoobys it's an easy job done from inside the car, but the new age you have to go underneath the car to fit?? is this correct? or b*ll sh#t?

Done my Bugeye from inside the car. It all depends on what you get. My Kartboy was just the lever however the Subaru one comes with replacement link arms etc, where you will need to go under the car.

can pick em up for about 50 ish and as sadi they do make a huge difference, something to bear in mind is don't go mega short.

you can be to quick for the gearbox on very short throw ones.
