here is my opinion on the shapes:

SPHERE: this is by far the most widely accepted and favorite shape because I have sold around 80% of my products in the round shape. There is inherent levels of comfort associated with the sphere because there are no sharp edges, and it is a good size (2" diameter) for your hand to easily hold and control. The only drawback of this shape is the lack of feedback for LEVER ANGLE. There is no way to tell the angle of the lever based on the feel of the sphere knob, only from the location relative to the other gears.

PISTON: This knob is a like-it / hate-it type of knob where you have to really just try it to know if you like it or not. The piston is a shape that keeps your hand vertically during all the shifts. I mean, you can hold it from the top, but its not meant for that. The vertical orientation is like an extension of the lever itself, so you pick up the actual angle of the shift lever, thus making it a bit easier to tell what gear you are in, and easier to aim for the next gear.

Youll feel the most precision when you need it, at the track. Thats the best place to test which knob suits you.
