Tranny problem?

Alright heres the scenario...Its so weird with my transmission sometimes when im changing gears. Sometimes its like cutting through soft butter and it goes into gear effortlessly; OTHER times though, maybe the next 2 mins through the same gears it shifts like the notchiest tranny on earth it doesnt make any sense. Is my clutch not engaging properly? I juyst changed the tranny fluid. Do any of you other guys experience this?

Im thinking if I get a heavier shift knob itll help a bit maybe.

Whats the problem here

I find the higher the RPM's the harder it is to shift. Looked into this before and im pretty sure our trannys are just notchy.

What fluid did you use?
