Has anyone changed out their stock Van Staal knob for one of the various
optional models available? Curious what model folks are most comfortable with?

I did my vs250 and vs275 both with larger round speed knobs. The hard part is drilling the arm out. Has to be perfect so as not to have any play in the knob. One was perfect. The other had a little play in it. I have since sold them. If you want I can try and find pics.

Thanks for the reply. Did you buy the speed knobs as aftermarket items?
I just ordered a Van Staal speed knob and I don't think it's anything, but "plug 'n play". I just took my stock knob off and it does appear I just replace same with the Van Staal round knob.

The ones from VS are just a quick replacement and that is what I would do.

Bought the direct replacement from VS...no drilling required...I would not have bought the power grip handle knob if it required drilling. Will post pic when installed...alan wrench is the only tool
