    True, it is better than bare metal, but I can't say how much as I never could get myself to risk my palms that much.

    I had a Blox type R platinum gun metal and that could be painful lol. It will be interesting to see how different they are.

    Shift knob weight

    Got the Moddiction knob on. It is cold in the morning but nothing like the Blox. Think it will be great. Took care of some of the notchyness but it's still there. Feels more solid though!

    The pictures make it look lighter but it is a nice dark gray. Meshes well with interior! The one without the flash shows the color the best just not too clear. Will get better pics in the daylight some time!

    I got the elite sphere - heavier than stock but can still be used in temp extremes

    I like that with the WRX on it. Is the shifting still chunky/notchy?

    With this knob instead of stock ? It does feel better - smoother by a little - more solid - but still notchy with kartboy bushings - it's still not the most fantastic feel but I am not sure extra weight could eliminate that - but when I test drive the ford st it's shifter felt so light and cheap coming from this - at first I missed the stock shape as I used to like pulling it down from 3 to 4 with my fingers wrapped around from the right but I like the sphere now.

    (Yeah the wrx logo really makes it nice)

    Anarchy motive. Heaviest on the market (I think). Pair it with the KB shifter bushings front and rear and it's a completely different experience when shifting. My shifter lever drops into place like butter.

    Really just by switching the bushings? I have the STi short throw with rear bushing. Sometimes coming to a stop first can be a pain and reverse is notchy has heck.
