Microshift R8 Drop Bar Brake/Shift Levers (Black) (Pair) (2 x 8 Speed)
Going from an old set of Shimano 600 shifters that the rubber hoods had gotten sticky and not being able to find replacements, to the Microshift 8 X 2 shifters. They seem to work just fine. It will take a little getting used to since I don't move the brake lever to shift now. My only issue is that the brake levers don't follow the bars they angle slightly to the outside, not a problem for me since I have big hands and I usually don't ride in the drops.

Microshift R8 Drop Bar Brake/Shift Levers (Black) (Pair) (3 x 8 Speed)
I was looking for parts to rebuild an old bike for a donation and I was happily surprised to find a set of brake levers/shifters that would do the job. reasonably priced, readily available, easy to shop for and find.
Everything I was looking for.
