I guess your gearchange lever had more travel than the "neutral - engaged" of the single lever you used?
I replaced a set of twin levers on the Dory 'coz they were such a pain. A decent, properly set up single should be no different to twin levers in response / control.
The one you really need to watch for is the old 70s Morse single lever with no neutral catch......
