    Just amazing Shifters.
    I bought it in the beta stage directly from Martin. I’m just blown away how durable they are. The feeling is perfect and Martin is always eager to improve his Product.
    I hope many more Products see the light of Day from Martin.

    i installed these (GT version on my accuforce button box). they work flawlessly. what is interesting is that it has a snap action quite strong without exercting a ton of force on the fingers. I tried several versions mainly frex paddle shifter with high snap action button switch .. I beleved at that time that they are quite good. guess what these asher paddle are in another league . the frex with high snap action are just hard push button . they are hard to press and might be a bit tiring for yhe fingers in long races . the aschers are smooth and strong at the same time , defined , reliable, reproducible
    these ascher paddles take a little time to adapt ( few laps ) but at the end of the day they are a must .
    one shortcoming is the price but these paddles are made of quality materiels . that outweighs a little bit that shortcoming.

    i am now thinking that i will get the F1 version to replace the ones already on my F1 rim.

    I bought these paddles for a custom formula wheel I made for my accuforce and I have to say they are fantastic. The feeling is perfect, much better than the standard accuforce ones. The magnetic mechanism is very clever, without springs prompted to fail. And the finish is very good.
    Also, the package came with a sweet surprise. Great detail, Martin.

    I have still to mount on my wheel, but can only say: “wow!” It looks so good that I’m tempted to use it also for a real race car! 🙂
    Moreover, not really related to the quality of the paddle shifter, but I found a chocolate in the box….. 🙂 very kind!

    Great product and Martin is indeed a nice guy!

    Fantastic Product!!! the feel is amazing.

    I installed the paddles in my real race car (Stohr F1000) and they are amazing! (I changed the micro switch to a weather resistant one) Martin was fantastic and so helpful even providing me the full specs for the standard micro switches so i could easily find a perfect replacement. Hopefully he will expand to providing full racing paddles.
    Thanks a lot Martin, your a legend!

    Very high quality device ! Design and finish are really unbelievable. No regret, it’s probably the best paddle shifter at an honest price.
    Thanks a lot Martin, thanks for the chocolate 🙂 and wish you best things for the new year !

    I purchased Martin Ascher magnetic shifters and backplate with Bodnar board and hardware pack. I have moved to OSW and did not have the funds to go ‘all in’ for one of the button plates and shifters so I thought I’d build my own. Martin’s speed of service, quality of products and attention to detail are superb. The shifters are beautifully crafted and have a fantastic action. The back plate is solid and all the hardware needed to mount the Bodnar board and fit the wheel is included in Ascher Racing branded baggies which is a nice touch.

    Martin has been amazing as he has provided me after sales service by helping and guiding me build the button plate. This is well beyond the service he needed to provide to me and without his help I believe I would have been in real trouble trying to make the button plate wiring.

    A* service. Will use again and cannot recommend highly enough.

    Thanks for all your help Martin. … Top Bloke, Top Products!

    Purschased 2 pair of these shifters now, one for my Fanatec Formula rim and a pair for my Universal hub. Both work phenomenally well. I had a small hitch when installing the formula shifters where I pinched one of the wires on both shifters inbetween the shifter mounting plate and the hub assembly but Martin made no fuss about it and talked to me about different options to solve the problem. Got them in the mail today and installed them and no further issues. This guy is a pleasure to work with and will continue to promote and purchase his products!

    No other paddle shifters on the market can match the quality, engineering design, and an incredible positive satisfying feel using Martin’s paddle shifters. Motorsport grade, high-quality carbon fiber, precision cut and pro assembly. Top Notch!!

    Martins service is undeniably one of the best I have encountered. Straightforward, professional and very helpful. I asked for a little more/ custom mod to the paddles and without any compromise, Martin went the extra mile in order to satisfy customer needs. Also very good listener and always looking for improvements. So far all perfect as far as I am concerned. New products won’t be short of any qualities I am pretty sure about that.

    The product is perfectly priced and you will only know once you start using Martins gear, you will realize its worth every penny.
