Default Boss Performance Multi-Piece Shift Knobs!

Hello everyone!

Now I know what you're all thinking, "great, another shift knob for sale." However I hope you'll find this one to have something that others do not.

That is the ability to stack or remove sections of this shift knob to change it's characteristics. Ever find yourself debating between a large, weighted, ergonomic shift knob, and a small, light, crisp one? Well, this shift knob's got it all.

The first run will be of 25 in 12x1.25 (Subaru!) and 25 in 10x1.25 (Mazda, etc) and finished by the end of November. Anodizing should be completed in the first week of December.

For this first run, I am limited on the colors I can do due to the amount of shift knobs. I will most likely be doing just three colors which are not yet decided.

I was thinking maybe blue, black and red? Or green or purple? This is where your input comes into play!

In the future, new designed tops, middles and bottoms will be coming out which you could equip your current knob with!

Enough with the chatter and on to the pics! The first run production versions will have a more rounded bottom piece and a middle piece that's shorter by 0.2".

The top is 95g, the middle is 220g, and the bottom is 50g. So 365g in the 3 piece config and 185g in the 2 piece config. It would be a whopping 585g with two middle pieces in a 4 piece config. These weights are approximate due to the fact that the prototype is slightly larger than the production version.

The price is going to be $30 per piece, or $80 if you buy all 3 pieces. If you want's to stack the middle sections for an extra tall knob, extra middle pieces will be $20, so if you wanted a 4 piece setup it would be $100, 5 piece $120, etc.

The first set just came off the line! Off to anodizing and they should be back to me in less than a week!

I have 25 in 10x1.25 and 25 in 12x1.25 (Subaru). There will be black, blue and purple to choose from in this initial run. I was limited to three colors due to the small run, but my next run will be different colors for sure.

The prices are $80 for all 3 pieces, or $30 individually.

So if you just want the top and bottom piece for a short one, it'll be $60. Additional middle pieces are only $20 each, so a 4 piece knob would be $100, 5 piece (pictured) would be $120, etc.

Thanks buddy! The unfortunate news is that in this batch, all but two of the shift knobs in the Subaru thread pitch (12x1.25) are black. The other two are blue.

Do you have a particular color or design you'd like to see?

That pink knob is sweet! Don't see the pink middle on the site. You should make a top that is duracon or similar.

That's because the anodizer messed up my order and made most of the purple and blue ones in 10x1.25 and most of the black ones in 12x1.25. In the next batch I plan on having many more colors in all of the sizes!

Thank you for your interest!
