In general a very, very awesome bang for bug mod. Weight is just a bit heavier than the OEM shift knob. This makes the feel of the shifts just perfect. Also beeing metal instead of rubber or plastic, the knob itself changes the feel of changing a gear a lot. You feel a lot more integrated into your transmission. Only thing to coplain is the thread is not that good. The Mazda ones are all a x1.25 but somehow the thread got stuck and after taking the knob of just one time after installing it, the thread seems to be faling apart already. Still nothing s little lock tight couldn't fix.
