Like the title says if you have an aftermarket shift knob can you post a pic and if you like it or not... also brand, weight, etc... thanks in advance.

My FK8 Type R Shift Knob is coming in tomorrow! That esco shift knob from Acuity is really nice too because it is made of acrylic (no heat buildup). Pretty small as you can see it is close in size to the OEM knob. Weight is at 140g. or 4-5 ounces.

Thanks for the shout out and the love! :) I just wanted to clarify that the knobs are actually acetal with a stainless steel core for weight. Everything else you said is accurate though! :p

Mine should be here tomorrow also! Since it's in theory an OEM knob I wonder if the boot will attach to this one the same as the old one?

The "boot" or I'm assuming that silver collar is "permanently" attached to the leather OEM knob. But it's fine though it sits flush with everything. I'm a little disappointed in the size though, wish it was just a little bigger. The feel is definitely better though.

Anyone tried the Boomba trans adapter and their shift knob yet?

Not currently, although we've debated it. We really want to launch a purple one in the not so distant future.

So installed my Type R knob but it's a little too small/light for me. I'm going to keep it because I still like the look and it might go well with a short shifter later. I ended up getting a Skunk2 shift knob and will see how that feels since it is heavier. @ACUITY I hope you guys come out with a purple version of the shift knob! I will definitely get one of those if you make them.

Skunk2 is junk, IMO.
Got it off Amazon so if I don't like it, I can return it easily. Seems like shift knobs are very subjective and everyone just has their particular tastes. Open for suggestions as well, have the FK8 knob which is light. I want a heavier one as a change of pace.

What about the Skunk2 is junk if you don't me asking? Seems like their main one is very popular from earlier gen forums.
