long vs short levers, and brands?

I'm thinking of getting some pazzo short levers, I think they look better and I think they would be a bit easier for city driving.
Tell me what you guys got.

I have the black shorty lever from Evotech.


I like them, I have fairly fat fingers but can still get 3 fingers on the clutch if feeling lazy.

Shorter levers are actually more difficult to pull due to a shorter lever arm so provides less torque with the same force. That being said, I have ASV shorties on mine and don't find it difficult at all. If you sit in a lot of traffic it may get annoying and I think I prefer the long levers for ease of use, but it really wasn't that much different. I also think they look a bit better as well.
