These are manufactured by us so they are made from high quality, robust plastic.  If they were made in quantities of 1000's in China, the price would be less, but unfortunately the Classic Amiga market is not large enough to justify such as production run.

In that case, why not add a switch (if needed) to spread support to Atari products as well as the Sega Master system? If this thing handles as nice as it looks, then I'm sure there would be plenty classic gamers out there with a 9-pin port just itching to have one of these plugged into it!

Looks nice!

I like the idea of using something like this across multiple systems. Whether a switch or some circuitry is needed, be well worth it as it would open up quite a larger range of potential customers.

Also, would be nice if all you needed to do was orient the controller to suit whichever preference vs. having an entirely different product to sell - that may well end up selling way fewer quantities. Some games (think maze types) play much better when you get to use your preferred hand, while shooters or beat 'em ups may be better suited for the other.
