These two are my favourites JOYSTICKS. I just bought the Competition Pro one, but I'm still looking for the one that feels and looks the same as my original did, back when I had a C64.

Supposedly it was a Competition Pro 5000, and it looked like it as well. But the button presses and joystick clicked like the Zipstick does. I don't like how the Comp Pro I have doesn't give any feedback on the buttons, it's just a soft press, almost like you're pressing a touch screen. I also seem to remember the transparent plastic not having that sandpaper feel, but be rather transparent like a bottle of coca cola. I remember buying it in Germany, cirka 1990, while I was on a vacation. It also felt slightly cheaper, like the zipstick, compared to the Competition Pro I have now. It could be an imitation, a fake copy, but if that was the case, it was a fake that was as good as the original.

I miss this joystick! Still looking for it.

EDIT: oops, didn't realize it was that big. Fixxxxxxxxxx'd.
