Is the piston any larger than the copolymer version? Or just heavier?

My theory is to have all the specific names of the knobs the same dimensions, just in different materials. What I did change was the piston shape, which was originally only 2.5" tall, but I have increased it to 3" tall so your entire hand can grab around it vertically. Thats the new size for ALL the STi piston knobs

The height was why I asked. It's just a bit smaller than I need. The new one sounds like it'd be perfect. Bump for a pic, and a side by side comparo would be FTW.

Heres the new Stainless knob. I dont have the old ones in stock, so I can't make a comparo pic. This one perfectly fits your entire hand around it so you can hold it without touching the reverse mechanism at the same time. This one is 3" tall overall.

Szumita, I can make the piston any size you want, shorter, skinnier, etc.
