Default Difficult Shifting

Had some issues today. The Zs shifter didn't want to go into Reverse, then it gave me difficulty in 1st and 2nd. Finally got it into those gears but it was very uncooperative.

Thoughts?

Shift fork liners worn? Dogs in synchros shot?

How's your fluid level in the shifter master cyl? If that's low, may cause some of that too.
Or air in the line.

I didn't know the liners could wear, I never considered that. I did consider the syncros.

Guess I'll check the master cylinder when I get home in a couple weeks. "Sigh" Need new rear tires, and now this....awesome
