Default ricks voodoo shift knob weight?

i have the stock leather wrapped shift knob now and want to get a countersunk matte black voodoo knob but was curious as to how much heavier it was than the stock unit. the heavier the better and if you know of a more desirable unit for that description then lay it on me.

thanks guys (and girls)

Well, I had the Skunk 2 shift knob and switched to the AL voodoo. The voodoo sits much lower and looks better. The Skunk 2 is much heavier (and sits about an inch higher) and gives smoother shifts. I went back to the Skunk sadly.

it feels like its about 2 lbs, the awesome thing is that its counter sunk so it sits lower, shorter shifts, ive had mine for over a year and i love it

The aluminum Voodoo is much lighter! I have one, but only used it for a few months. The shift is more difficult than OEM, though much shorter. I would suggest the titanium Voodoo, which is supposed to be heavier. It isn't cheap though.

The Voodoo knob isn't heavy at all-- that's my only complaint about it. I think it's lighter than the OEM ap2 knob.

The Civic Type-R and NSX-R knobs are nice and heavy.
