This is still a very good 8 gear H-shifter (Lightning SST):
It has a micro switch per gear layout inside which makes it very durable and simple design from inside. They also send you replacement micro switches if they break, and there seems to be lifetime warranty too these days for it too.
Very easy to disassemble if you decide to repair it yourself if it breaks (compared to G25 shifter for instance, which broke in under a year and was practically irrepairable).
For the reference mine broke after two years of violently banging in the first gear in iRacing Skip Barber grid. After that I just had to turn the micro switch base around to get the first gear working again, while losing the 8th gear. I got the replacement micro switches and the base part from Sim-Gear very shortly, but haven't bothered to replace them yet as gear 8 is not needed anywhere since I don't do trucking sims.
Built quality is also extremely good; it is heavy and pretty much everything is solid steel. It has solid screw and wide clamp mechanism for attaching it to the table.
