Question Subaru specific MOMO shift knob weight

Can someone with the Subaru specific MOMO knob please check the weight of the knob for me? I've searched all of the applicable forums and have not found a definitive answer. In addition, how much lower, if any, does the momo knob sit than the stock shift knob?

What's with the hijack. I didn't ask about quality, I asked about the weight and the shift knob height.

haha. why are you asking for wieght? its a shift knob! haha. its not going to be much of a difference. if you wanted to get a certain shift knob but it sat too high, then cut your shifter down. thats all you gotta do.

Actually the weight of a knob does make a noticeable difference...at least for me it does.

For me, heavier is better as it takes away the notchiness and dampens the throw of the shifter. Some prefer to feel this so it's up to you. The momo Subaru knob is actually quite a bit heavier than the stock knob. Although the OEM knob feels nice and all, I found the first thing wrong with it to be the weight...

I agree with Hank3, heavier shifters feel more solid... 1 800 358 4029 is the number to SubaruXtras, those guys were wicked helpful and would probably weigh the knob for you over the phone. I wanted the same knob, but IMO it doesn't match the steering wheel as well as the regular MOMO universal knob. Plus it only comes in the half aluminum version. Bad thing in the FL heat, and I don't like the way it looks with the C.F. trim.

BTW does anyone know how I can get in touch with Paulie (as in the famous Paulie Adapter)?

Thanks, I just got hold of him this morning and he said he can't make them right now and doesn't know when he will be able to again. Bummer.... Thanks for the help.
