Gear Knob advice/options

Hi All,

Picked up a CTR at weekend and I've actually started looking forward to driving to work...

One of my niggles though is the gear knob, I get clammy hands and the gear stick being metal means it gets slippery which is annoying.

I've searched about here and google but I haven't come across anything relevant. 90% of GK posts end up with a Skunk 2 recommendation and 'Gear Knob Cover' in google returns a guide to changing the gaiter and numerous queries on how to change the gaiter.

I thought I'd post prior to buying driving gloves (and looking a knob without the gear). Is anyone aware of any sort of GK cover or non-metal GK with a similar OEM weight or even something I could use to cover the GK??

If you go on eBay you can find knitted knob covers which are good for the job and even come with an R or an H

Have a few katsock ones. Can't fault them and you can choose colours/design

Ahh, I think my sister collected those little innocent hats! I'll see if I can get one off her as a temporary measure.

Thanks peeps, I'll have a look for katsock.
