In yonder olden days I played with a Quickshot Python, a few Cruisers, and a transparent Crystal something-or-other. They were all far superior IMO. I wish someone would make a USB version of one of these. You can't buy basic joysticks anymore - your choices are either one with 50 buttons and a dozen throttles and modifiers or a joypad.
Aye Quickshot joysticks made some of my favourites QS-138F was probably my fave which I still use to this day on the miggy. I remember buying a clear cased comp pro in 1993 and didn't use it after a few goes, my arm felt like dropping off with an hours use!

Same with the Zipsticks too - those were like tugging on a piece of over well done steak!
