Weighted shift knob

I see a lot of people on here with aftermarket shift knobs, but none of the manufactures ever list their weight.

I have a 200 gram shift knob on my Rx7 and I love it. Has anybody tried one on this gen mustang gearbox? I'm looking at getting one that weighs about 400-600 grams. They're expensive though ($100-200)

Here's one I'm looking at buying:

I just can't believe with this car and the current shifter that they will do anything for making shifting easier. Stock shift box and after market ones shift pretty easily to not need the counter weighting affect. Seems like a waste of money.

I'm with you on that. I was just hoping someone tried it and had feedback for it. The gearbox seems pretty good as is in regards to ease of movement, but on my Rx7 I barely push on the shifter and it moves right into gear. Maybe I just need to switch to a new shifter for the mustang.

My wife got me this one for our 1st anniversary last year before we got married from UPR. The diameter of the socket was slightly smaller than the shift post, so we had to take it to a machine shop to get it rethreaded. I don't know the weight since I didn't buy it (and I just never bothered to find out lol), but it's billet aluminum. It's got a really solid weight to it though. I love it. I still need a boot retainer, but I can do without it for now.

I agree. Thats A TON of money for a shift knob.
