LOL My wife had the hardest the hardest time getting used to the gear shift in our Tige vs the Crownline we had prior. After driving it for a few months now, she still has issues. The Tige has much more performance to it than our Crownline did, so I'm sure that's the reasoning in the shifter being much more stiff.

What difference specifically?

Maybe because I/O's also have the trim switch incorporated in them?

I/O's have a trim switch and they also have a shift interrupter switch.

Ha when I took my v-drive out for the first time it took me 15 minutes sitting on the boat ramp to figure out how to put it in gear. Luckily no one was around to see it!

I think it also has to do with precise control of the speed. Inboard throttles are much easier to rest with thumb and forefingers gripping the knob to get very quick and minute throttle changes. Regular throttles are made more as a simple go lever designed to be pistol gripped with the whole hand. These are tournament boats vs all-around every day cruiser and the demands are different. Just like knife makers don't design a steak knife to perform the job of an exacto.
