This is a personal opinion question. sram usually shifts a little rougher, but more precise. Shimano is a smooth shift, but it can be frigidity with dirty cables. I run shimano because all the bikes I own have shimano shifters and I like rapid rise. If you aren't going to replace the shifters, use whatever you have now.
