I bought one from the first batch and it is a top notch piece holds up well. I have always had it on the shortest setting so I imagine it is shorter than the Steeda. I like it short and haven't felt the need to adjust it. Highly recommend it. Comes with new hardware as well.
I'm happy with mine also. I particularly like the height adjustment capability. I've never liked the feeling of "reaching down into the floorboard" that you get with some shifters, so I like the fact that I can tailor the height to a good ergonomic position for my driving style.
