Let's talk 3speed, floor mounted, auto shifters

Hello everyone,
I am currently looking for a floor mounted shifter. I am looking for simplicity of operation (picture parallel parking), but I really like the look and somewhat the operation of the B&M Stealth Pro Ratchet Shifter.
Has anyone used one of has had any experience with a ratchet style shifter.
What are you running in your truck (or car)??

here is a quick video of the B&M Stealth Pro Ratchet Shifter

I run the B and M you can get at advance auto. I believe it's the Z-gate shifter. It's very easy to use and setup.

Way,way,way back in the day had the old one with the T handle, use hit that thing hard, you know the 20something hyped up on Jolt soda street racer hard. Took a beating, but honestly I liked the Hurst quarter stick better for daily grind.
Ran the B&M in a 69 roadrunner mid 11 sec car, also in a frankenstein ramchager, 4x2

I've used the B&M Fastgate, TCI PR0 and now B&M Stealth.
The Fastgate is the cheapest and IMO most street friendly. The TCI PRO shifts good, but needt to pull the lever to go into 3rd. B&M Stealth is a ratchet shifter, one gear at a time. Least street friendly.

Both of my trucks have one variant or another of the Hurst 1/4 stick, this is the ram. The one pic shows where I relocated the OD button

Thank you all for the pictures and suggestions. I forgot to mention that the shifter will be used on a trans with a manual valve body so there will be a lot of up/down shifting during street driving. I like the "sequential-like" movement of the ratchet shifter once you are moving, but dislike having to bang the shifter 10 times to get into reverse or park, LOL!!. I will go to my local advance auto parts and see if I can spot the one Keith mentioned and see how I like it

I was at summit racing today and took a look through all the shifters on display. I don’t like the ratchet style, too much messing around it seemed like. And I want to avoid as much of the releases as possible since I’ll use one on a manual valvebody as well. Out of all the videos I watched online, the “Z gate” shifter Keith recommended looked the best for a daily.

Did you have a chance to look at the FastGate?

No I didn’t see it there. Can’t really find any good videos online either
