    Personally I like the sphere/globe style ones. (whatever you wanna call them)

    While having a nice feeling shift knob is nice, I think that if anything you should get a short throw and bushings. That will make it 1000x better. (okay well maybe not that much, but you get the hint)

    i have a short shift in my car, came from factory with it. and hmmm, i wonder what i would like better, i havent driven many stick cars, and never one with an aftermarket shifter on it lol, all the sticks ive drove were my dads and he just keeps his cars stock because he always got wrangler rubicons and corvettes that he would drive the vette in summer, jeep in winter, and he was always satisfied with the stock car.

    First off, good choice on the Nameless exhaust as you will NOT be disappointed - that thing is awesome man. PS, get double-walled, staggered tips flush with valence, it looks the best

    As for WC Lathe Werks, I can actually vouch for Chris who runs that company, he was really good to deal with, answered countless of questions through email and helped me pick out the perfect shift knob for me. I ended up going with the Titanium Piston, 3 knurled grip bands, w/custom 'WRX' engraving on the flat top. It matches the flat colors of the interior and dashboard areas perfectly. I'll post some pics later.

    Just on a side note, I decided on the piston because I think it looks the coolest. It is obviously not as ergonomically designed as the Sphere styled shift knobs. However, keep in mind, that you should'nt rest your hand on the shift knob while driving anyways. Have you ever looked at the shifter when driving? Notice how it moves about as you hit bumps or uneven patches of asphalt? When you rest your hand on it, you transfer that energy back into the drivetrain, which overtime will damage your transmission. Just thought I'd add that, as most people buy the Sphere because it's more comfortable to rest on, but really you should only have your hand on the shifter when you are actually shifting.

    If you DO order a WC lathe werks knob, good time to get the front/rear kartboy shifter bushings as well, they help a ton and make it feel a lot better. Also saves on shipping costs :P

    I had LatheWerks build me a custom big knob for my Sasquatch hands. Super comfy!

    It is simply a larger version of the standard teardrop shaped knob.

    I've chimed in on any thread having to do with WC. They are awesome. I have 3 different knobs from them...copolymer sphere, aluminum weighted sphere, and a teardrop with texture that they went ahead and made custom for my 350z when I had it. At the time, it was the very first 350z knob they had done. The quality is awesome on all their goodies and their customer service rocks. Good choice.
