mercury has the shift in the tiller, just twist the tiller into whatever gear you need.

some motors the shift is on the starboard side of engine. some are on the bow facing side. some even have them mounted on top of the tiller(yamaha)....

Basically if you are doing close mauvering then you will be sitting on the rear deck near the motor so shifting will be easy. The tiller extensions are more for making runs, mostly for comfort and better weight distribution, but also if you want to stand to see better. Some have them rigged so they can pull them off when they are going to dock.

From the review section...

or, you can fabricate your own with minimal expense and effort.
As cut runner pointed out, Merc is the only one with the shift
incorporated into the throttle twist grip, so full control is maintained even with an extension.
