I have some M730 XT thumbshifters, several pairs actually, that I will probably never use again. I don't find that drvietrains now actually shift much better than ones from back then, but the 1x thing is so much better. So even though those XT thumbies still work pretty well (and, come to think of it, the Shimano compatible Suntour XC Pro ones are even better), there is no place for them on a modern bike. Sigh. (Also- thumbies require taking your thumbs off the grips to shift- not a good idea when traversing a rock garden or root carpet at speed). Never ridden anything that shifts as well as Suntour XC Pro thumbies.
