Hi All,


I had two favourite Joysticks....


Obviously my go too stick that got hammered to death (That's why I always had several backups!) was the good, old Zipstick!






But I had a secret weapon for certain games against my mate and he used to hate it, so much so he banned me from using it on games at his house! That Joystick was the QuickJoy Superstar.




A couple of the games I remember hammering him to the floor with was Graham Gooch World Class Cricket, Sensible Soccer and Waggle-O-Mania 2 no joystick could waggle like this one! (That doesn't sound right does it?)


I also had one of these bad boys....





They looked cool but played like crap!

Great times


Sean aka Numbnuts

You'r not alone - nobody can remember all those generic names lol

I go along with micro-händler, at least this name is somewhat unique.

Honestly the stick itself needs quite some travel and I'd prefer stick left, buttons right, so I still stick with others (suzo,...) lol.

But it's quite cool. Also includes paddles. And it's the only joystick I know with adjustable auto-fire rate, which i find useful. In terms of features and robustness the micro händler is quite unbeatable

It's also interesting that there exists a smaller version, half of the size, without paddles and only one yellow button, called Sigma 1001.
I have one of those!
Really tough one, but really crappy paint etc.

Not sure if it still works.

People that love QuickShot: Really guys you need to check out real joysticks and see what you were missing.

Konix Navigator, although diagonals were always difficult to execute.

Got 1 of these the other day , brilliant bit of kit altho they are a bit pricey

https://monsterjoysticks.com/retro-g...-joystick-kits

sanwa parts so u know its gonna be good lol, hasa switch that when used maps up on the stick to the 2nd button, very handy for those platformers.

Im so impressed that my usual go to Zipstick is taking a well earned break in the drawer.

Back in the day Competiton pro. The new version with USB I also have. It is so hard that it is silly to use. Tac2 is a nice stick but the buttons are crap if you need to be fast. I also have that one. I also have HoneyBee, CD32 pad. It is ok. What I use the most is a playstation adapter to my A1200. That way I can use all PS1 and PS2 controllers. I have a lot of joysticks, pads and controllers. The one I use the most with Amiga in the picture 1. I have 2 of them. Big and nice, made by Hori. The 2 buttons down in the middle are button X and O. Button 1 and 2 for Amiga. Played Benefactor the other day. In that game I tried a lot of different controllers. Competition pro. won for that game. Nr. 2 in the pictures are also working well. It is another one by HORI. It is smaller size. The stick is very precise but the buttons are little small I think. Also possible to use playstation joypads but I don't like them compared to arcade sticks. I also have trackball that is big and nice for Marble Madness. That is probably my favorite but it is only for that game
