Im interested in getting a pair and dont know whether to stick with the standard length or go shorty.

Whats the pros and cons between the two??

It is really just preference. The shorties are more or less for people who prefer to use just two fingers for braking and clutching. I believe they come in a little further as well so you do not wear your hands out as quick leaving them stretched if you have short fingers.

I use all 4 fingers on the clutch and 2 on the brake. Should I go with 1 shorty and 1 regular?

Im completely opposite. I use 2 fingers on the clutch and 4 fingers on the brake if needed when I need the extra stopping power. Usually i use 2 on both. I would get a short clutch lever, and a long brake lever

I stuck with the regular size myself.

I went with CRG - both shorties and love them. The short brake was a natural - I already just used 2 fingers anyway. The clutch was more to get used to than I thought, but now I like it. I 3 finger the clutch and my 3rd finger rides right on the nob end and I have gotten used to feeling it that way. Although I would not have thunk it, I have actually adjusted both brake and clutch on the fly as my riding style changed during the same ride.
