How much bigger would you say it is than the stock knob?
The pic says it best.



It's about 2/3 to 3/4 of an inch taller and at least twice as heavy as my stock 06 knob I'd say (though I have no scale). I can fit four fingers around the SS piston and wrap my thumb around the other way. It fills my hand.


NOTE: please rehost the image instead of hotlinking. My photobucket bandwidth usage already makes baby Jesus cry.

I was referring specifically to the sphere.

the sphere is 2" diameter that I make. The piston is 1.5" diameter.
The sphere wraps your fingers around the outside, so its like holding any other ball-shaped object. The piston wraps your fingers around it vertically, a different angle than the sphere, different feel all together.

i just received my piston today and was amazed at the quality and especially the WEIGHT!! this thing is heavy and awesome, finally after about 4 knobs(all spheres) this one is my favorite yet:tup: almost feels like the shifter FALLS into gear with minimal effort and even with big hands this piston fits very nice. once again great work chris:D

I noticed this morning that the shifts are much easier. It slides through gates with minimal effort and no herky-jerky movements at all. I'd go so far as to say the notchiness is reduced. I like it. Now I have to convince myself I can live without it while I get it coated.

How's my SS Piston going Chris? =D I can't wait to test it out.. I have some engraving planned for it =D

-Nate
I have the raw stock cut, and will be finishing it up in the next couple days. I had some spheres pre-cut, thats why I was able to get them out earlier.
