Which knob do you have, the pro or comfort ?

This is getting ridiculous now. I only joined yesterday and I've already got a list as long as my arm of shiny things I never knew I wanted. I'll be bankrupt by the end of the week!

I have to be honest chaps. I put one of these on 3 weeks ago and then took it off my Zodiac Pro Open 550 as it kept catching the kill cord when I turned the wheel, dont want the engine cutting out when you least expect it. It didnt happen every time but enough to concern me, and usually when you didnt want it too, like during high speed turns with the kids out back on a ringo. Also, my console cover was made without one, so with the knob on it didnt fit properly, so I removed it and just put my finger into the wheel and turn it that way at close quarter maneuvering. So perhaps best to consider this and your specific set up, kill cord position etc before you go out and buy one
