does anyone here speak jive? :-]

The MOMO colored shift knobs are so pimp... they´re like machined stainless steel with lexan colored inserts...

I´d love one if money was no object, but I really don´t see the point in upgrading look if it doesn´t upgrade speed...

I can´t stand the stock knob in my LX.. doesn´t fit my hand well at all. I picked up a $20 aluminum/vinyl ball shifter at Advance Auto and couldn´t be happier. IMHO, paying more than $30 for shift knob is rediculous.
I carved a nice knob out of a peice of scrap poplar when I was 17. Once I had it sanded down smooth I rubbed in linseed oil and then used it in the car until my hands had smoothed it down even further.. then one day I took it out of the car and spent a weekend running out to the garage every hour to put a coat of polyurethane on it.. it looks and feels great now. (got it in my Legacy)

i´ve got a big round 8 ball for my shifter :-D suprisingly, it actually conforms to my grip quite well, can do powershifts quite easily

Have you seen the size of the shifter knobs in the Escort Cosworth rally cars? Those things were huge. Bigger than a baseball, smaller than a softball.
