With Rapid File you can shift while braking which I consider a big advantage.

My grip shift has fallen apart off my iron horse g-out. Sholud i replace it with new gripshift or rapid fire?
I have tried my friends rapid fire and it felt a lot better than gripshift and my gripshift used to change gears sometimes, are all grip shift like that or did i get a **** one?

I have the earlier versions of shimano decore XT rapid fire, and it kills my thumb when shifting a lot. My thumb gets so painful that I reach over and shift with my left hand frequently. I haven't heard of others with this problem though, so it might just be me.
