I know that this is all a matter of opinion and what is comfortable to each individual using the knob. I am just curious to see what you guys are using in your ride. What type of knob (texture/material/manufacturer), What kind of style/shape do you prefer? and Why?
I am curious because I have a stock 5 speed knob. I really enjoy how it feels in my hand its a very comfortable fit in my opinion. I just really dislike the way it looks. A friend of mine has the STi 5pd knob which is not bad, I just don't think its as comfortable in hand as the stock shape. So I have been scouring the web for something that I feel would be a suitable replacement for the stock one, while still maintaining that comfort I seek. Additional note: I am going to put a short shifter and bushings in too (probably before the knob) and I figured if I get a round style knob like the Cobb knob, it will feel extremely short. Whereas if I get a knob similar to the Perrin knob, it should sit a little higher. I feel Like a teardrop shape (if that's the right term) would be what I end up with if I don't opt for the Perrin knob.
So let me hear what you all have to say about your knob. What sold you on your knob, and what do you love/ dislike about it?
