I can't speak to the one supplied with the kit since I never used it, but from what I understand from my research, the cable shift is a way smoother feel and also less complex, easier to install, and gives more flexibility for placement and routing options. My car has a brandwood and it is simple and easy to adjust, so I can say that I do like it and would recommend it.
