I can describe this knob with one word: PERFECT. I'm -extremely- particular when it comes to certain things and my shift knob is one of them. I've been looking for the perfect knob for about 2 years and found some to come close, but weren't perfect.
The Aesthetics: The knob is flawless in appearance. I was origionally a little concerned that the finish was so black that it had a purple hue as seen in the picture on the website. I decided this was acceptable and the black I was looking for simply didn't exist. This was not the case. The black chrome is such a deep black that it practcally absorbs light. What I thought was a pipedream was realized in this knob.
The Feel: After trying differnt shaped knobs, including spheres, I decided I wanted more of a piston design...until I tried a copolymer sphere (borrowed from a friend) made by WC Lathe Werks. I LOVED it... which really surprised me. However, I wanted a heavy knob like the SS one. The weight just feels right. Maybe it's just me, but with the added weight, I feel more connected and sensative to my shifts.
The Craftsmanship: Again, flawless. I spun the knob on the shifter and it practically threaded itself. The sphere is perfect and the edges around the hole are solid. You can tell that great care was put into the manufacturing of the knob.
Customer Service: Chris was great. He was not only very professional, but was personable as well. I felt like he did everything right...communication, honesty, and follow-through.
I would give this knob a 10 out of 10 and HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to my friends. The copolymer knob of his was also outstanding. Personally, I don't think you can get a shift knob of higher quality.
