I have an older bike that came with 3x9 deore. It's now 1x9 which is fine for what it's used for, however both of the 9sp shifters I have are not "catching" going up the derailleur. I've tried cleaning one out and putting some fresh grease in with limited success.

I really just want to keep it shifting well with minimal outlay. Unfortunately I'm really struggling to find a 9sp shifter of deore-like build quality and it seems like I've got to accept something like an Alivio shifter, and ebay prices are AU$40. Is there anything better that I'm missing? It seems everything 9sp I've got lying around keeps on working perfectly except for shifters.

Unless just the shifter is avail and compatible with existing Shimano derailleurs, I don't see it being for me. I can see Shimano 10sp groupsets (shifter/der/cassette/chain) for < AU$200 which would make more sense for me at those price points.
