I have eliminated 3rd lock outs this way, by twisting my arm so my palm faces straight to the right I naturally apply a tad of right pressure and it goes right in. But I have not had the clutch stick to the floor issue, just the clutch stuck at half way issue. I haven't figured out an angle for the other sticky gears either, I was focusing on the worst one. I suspect the MGW would help with this type of lock out, though yours may be from a different source.
The stock shifter is sloppy but I agree that a change in technique may help your 2-3 shift. After I shift to 2nd I push hard forward with a open hand. I never take my foot off the gas. The motor starts to lose power somewhere around 6500. When the power drops off, the shifter just pops out. As soon as it pops out, press you clutch and it shoud go right to 3rd. I also bring my sitback forward so I'm not reaching for 3rd. It will feel like a long power shift. I really think the open palm has a lot to do with the shift as well.
