Default Cobb vs. Kart Boy shifter bushings

I just won an auction on eBay for a Kartboy shifter lever and bushings. I already have some Cobb bushings installed in my car though.

Are the Kartboy ones stiffer than the Cobb ones? The Kartboy ones have a durometer rating of 95A according to Kartboy's page. I don't see any specs on the Cobb ones on Cobb's page.

I was looking a shift lever and found this auction with both together. I got the shift lever + bushings for about the same price as what a used Kartboy shift lever normally goes for by itself on the For Sale group. I plan on selling off either my Cobb bushings or the Kartboy ones once I figure out which I like better.

Cobb bushings = Kartboy bushings in terms of durometer. So sell either set.

Keep the ones you have installed. I bet if you go post those KB bushes in the classified section for say, $15-20, you will have 'em sold in an hour.
