Kartboy or Perrin Short Throw Shifter?

OK, so I've searched all the threads on short throw shifters and it seems like everyone likes either the Kartboy or the Perrin. I know the Perrin retains the original shifter lever and the Kartboy replaces the entire lever. I'm not sure which one to choose. Any other good shifters out there besides those two? If you had to make a choice, which short throw shifter would you choose?

Either one should work just fine - what I would suggest however, is also getting stiffer shifter bushings, which will greatly improve the feel and take away some of the "slop". Personally I love my KB, but then again, I'm biased

I think the Perrin one goes for like $85 and I think the KB goes for around $100. Shifter bushings are around $20-30 depending on where you get them.

Kartboy. I have driven cars with both, and the Kartboy is much nicer.

I just read about Perrin's new "adjustable" Shifter. I'd look into that before making a purcahse.
