B&M shift knob

What's the top of the B&M shift knob look like?

Does it have a B&M logo, or does it have the shift pattern engraved on it? If it has the shift pattern, do they send you a different knob, depending on whether you have a 5-speed or a 6-speed?

I know TWM has the shortest height, but I've seen a few comments that the B&M actually has a shorter throw. Is that true?

A lot of people recommend TWM, but can anyone provide any details as to WHY to get either TWM or B&M over the other?

I dont think so...b&m knobs are bigger around at the base, and these knobs are made to screw directly on.

Why people don't use a standard for these things is beyond me. Life and modding would be so much easier.

i am considering a shifter, but the TRD includes a knob and a full shift assembly for about the same price, overall which is the best, not for the heighth, but for the smooth shift and sturdiness? please help!!

Where did my sig go? help me find it..........
