Looking for a joystick

Hi there, I've recently got hold of an A500 to replace my orignal one that was chucked out long time ago - long story, still upsets me...

Back in the 90s I had a couple of joysticks like the one in the attachment and I'd love to get one again. Does anyone know the make & model?

I found the picture on eBay but the seller wasn't interested in helping out, so hopefully someone on here might know.

the one if the bottom corner looks like a quickshot. The main one looks like a competition pro joystick, only the buttons are square not round

See if you can find yours here: http://kookosity.blogspot.com/2015/0...st-to-end.html

Pah, they didn't have the same one. The funny thing about these old sticks is, that they had different "manufacturer" names at different times. Commodore/cheetah/beeshu/euromax? Power play/sonmax? Suzo/Kempston/Euromax/Dynamics Marketing? We'll never know the truth, which probably is that most of these were made by two companies in Taiwan and the local distributors just sent their box art + manual designs over. :-)

Your stick is a Sureshot, perhaps by Power Play, perhaps by Sonmax. They were made in double and single button models, both transparent and opaque..

I agree with Jope, looks like a sureshot supreme. Not seen one with a black stick before though, maybe a different model to the supreme.

Guy on amibay was selling a few years back, maybe worth trying to contact him?
