trigger brake lever questions

I am looking for a good brake lever (in a trigger style) like this one here:

https://www.danscomp.com/486019.php

But I am looking for something with a bit more quality (ie $50 or so). Can anyone help me out here.

Agreed With The People Above,You Cant Go Wrong With An Odyssey Monolever,One Small Complaint I Would Have Is It Isnt Sprung So You Have To Make Sure You Get It Dialled In And This Can Take A Little Bit Longer,
Also They Are Hinged So No More Struggling Trying To Get Your Grip Off Just So You Can Get The Lever On.
Hope That helps M8

Did you know that you don't have to capitalize the first letter of every word?

Is is that big of a deal? I don't know. But I am pretty sure there is something about it in the rules.

I'm picking up the Odyssey Small lever soon enough, the little nub at the end of my Trigger lever is eating away at my knuckle.

I ended up going with the goldfinger! The odyssey was the same price and I liked the look of the goldfinger more.

I've never had a Goldfinger but I used one at the one LBS once and I don't like it at all. I hope you do.
