Strengths:    Great operation
Feeling the shift
Very light

Weaknesses:    Price jump

Bottom Line:   
I prefer any SRAM road drivetrain over Shimano or Campagnolo because I like to 'feel' the shift instead of not even feel a click. The Force shifters accomplish this just fine but I've put the value at only 3/5 because I have extensive experience with Apex and Rival and don't notice much difference at all. I don't think it's any more reliable mechanically or in operation, just much lighter. I wouldn't upgrade to Force if you already have a SRAM drivetrain. If you do have SRAM and want to upgrade, go to Red!
