Suncom "Slik Stik". Very good for quick movements.


That's the only joystick I ever had with my Amiga. They're pretty good (and were damn cheap) but the little metal clips inside keep getting dislodged. It's extremely annoying to be going for the record, then all of the sudden you can't move in one direction. "UP! I said UP, damn it!".

No matter how many times you clip them back and tighten them, they always get loose again. That's the whole reason I need a replacement. On one a plastic pillar broke (so it won't hold together) and the other keeps screwing up.

Just wondering - how big are those Competiton Pros? They look pretty bulky and that "ledge" looks like it could hurt your hand. Are they comfortable?

No no... there is only one choice and that is Suncom TAC-2. No microswitches - I always "hated" those. Just simply precision, small movement - Totally Accurate Controller 2

Tac-2 was always a great piece of work.. too bad the buttons always died after a year or so. An autofire-switch would have been nice (plus saving those precious buttons from dying ;-))

I just hope these New Versions have Button B and C like the SEAG Pads..so that we can use them with Turrican, ProjectX, LionHeart, and other games that support it............I always hated Single button joysticks for Amiga........even if the Joystick had 2 buttons, it was the same button.  Sucks when your on the sofa in the living room playing....then having to come and press the space bar in Turrican cuz your joystick only has one Button.

I think any SEGA pad beats any Joystick in existence for the Amiga....period.
CD32 is actually the best Amiga ever made by Commodore!...
