I went with the Boss 302 knob on my 401a interior. Nowhere near as hot as the metal ball that it came with. For $50, I prefer the look to the aftermarket knobs, and you don't need a spacer set up, it fits right in like the stock 401a knob did.

The stock boot and the 402a CS boot take the larger 1.25.

Correct. The 401a package would have given you the shift knob on the right.

They're too cold in the winter, too hot in the summer and the reflective ones can blind you.

My last 2 honda 6-speeds had a leather/metal knob and I vowed to never have another one in a car. Sure, they look pretty cool but they fail hard in everyday use.
yeah my rsx-s had one and it was scorching in the summer and ice cold in the winter. I used a small footie sock most of the time when I wasn't in the car.

I've got a white steeda cue ball knob on the way so hopefully it won't be as hot sa the stock knob.
