    Suggestions for nice shift knob (not ball)

    Hey Guys,

    I've been looking to get a nice shift knob for my TA, I've put a B&M short throw shifter in it (love it btw) now I'm looking for a shift knob. I've looked ever where and almost got the Momo F-16 Evo.. but I don't think it will fit (also wondering if it wouldn't really go well in a TA)....

    So do any of you guys have any recommendations for a nice one? I'm looking for a nice leather one (not a ball).

    thanks.

    If you don't like a ball, currently I have a pistol grip from Hurst. It is not something that I really love, but it is good. I will try to get a picture of it up before I change out to a short shifter and replace it with a ball.

    I was thiking about the one from the C6 vette too. I think it goes well with the T/A interior. Hey DOCJJ45, how do you like it? Is it a pretty good leather? Is the reason why the "gear location" piece is kind of tilted? Does it fit in your hand better?

    I didn't even think of the B&M shiter knob. I thought those would be better in an auto. Interesting though.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    The leather is great, and with a short shift I think it looks awesome with our interior. The tilt shape is nice... it just fits the hand well... one of the most comfortable knobs i've had. No problems with it backing off or coming loose... but I'm a lock-tight freak.

    (I got mine out of an actual c6, when a bud changed his. I'm not sure if the ebay links I gave will be equal quality...)
