I do know UUC and RE both make weighted selector rods, along with there being a variety of options for weighted shift knobs. I still believe that most on this forum will damage their synchros because they are careless shifting.

I also don't see why you wouldn't replace the shift input bushing first. That is the number one contributor to poor shifter feel.
The number one feeling to poor shifter feel in our cars, at least for the S5D320z ZF unit, are the infamous shifter detent pins. I would say if you have this unit, don't bother with shifter upgrades unless this job is completed
