Best Shift Knob for 2013 Focus

I just bought a 2013 Focus SE hatchback, 5 spd MT about 3 weeks ago. It has a leather wrapped gear shift knob that I'm not crazy about. I'd like to replace it with a sphere shaped aluminum knob. Is there anything on the market like that for this car? I want a quality knob that is specifically made for this car, not something off the shelf from an auto parts store that uses set-screws to fit.

Thanks!

You still need a nut or set screw to hold the shift boot up properly, unless you don't care about that part.

Post pics of your knob's

Thanks suss6052. I'm looking for an aftermarket knob that is an exact fit, specifically sized so that I won't have to adjust the boot at all. But, if that doesn't exist and I have to adjust the boot with a set screw, that's fine. I just don't want one of those 'one size fits all' knobs that needs a set screw for the knob to fit snug.

What exactly makes a knob the "best" knob?
