I've looked at a few knobs but really the stock knob really fits my hand nicely and no need to change but I do like the HVAC control knob option but too many other things in front of that right now. Shorter throw shifter migth be needed sooner than later.

Installing the Steeda short throw bracket was the only thing that lead me to buy an aftermarket knob. Like you, I liked the stock knob with the stock shifter, but the weighted Blox knob really smoothed out the notchiness that the STB introduced.

I'm liking the gun-metal. What's the pitch - 12x1.25?

12 x 1.25 is correct.

Nice. Just ordered the blue sphere. I'm a big fan of gun-metal, but I think the blue will go with the dominant interior dial color of blue better. Plus, the wifey has a gun-metal spherical shift knob (as well as a matching red Mazda3) and we can't be EXACTLY the same...

Looking forward to it. Now, if only I cound find a short-shifter that doesn't lose the feel of the stock.
