OK, got my prototype.

I think I'm going to reduce the OD of the grip a tiny bit. It's pretty comfortable now, but if it were aluminum it would be too heavy. I love the height, and the shift throw is awesome. Thoughts?

Hey Matt, how much would it cost for you to have it made in UHMW?

That's a decent idea for bringing the cost down!

yeah, and based on the weight of the proto I think the UHMW would be plenty heavy.

Also, with winter driving, I'm regretting a metal shift knob. Aluminum just sucks the heat out of your hand. I also don't wear gloves ;)

I couldn't find it in my texts. Matt, did you ever talk to your work about making this in UHMW?
