Immortal Joysticks - The highest quality customised joystick

I build custom joysticks for the Amiga and other retro systems using aluminium enclosures and quality arcade parts.
The joystick layout is customisable to suit the user. You can also customise a wide range of parts on the joysticks including colour, autofire, button mapping, spring weight, gate types and actuator size.

If there is something specific that you would like included or would like to change, please discuss it with me and I will do what I can to accommodate your requirements.

Says on the page, "Prices start at £100 + postage"
(and now after Brexit, there will be customs charges too for some ) ;-)

Cost is very much dependant on how people decide to spec them. For a standard 2 button joystick it is £100 plus postage. Most people elect to add things like autofire and button mapping, which brings the cost up to around £120. I provide a quote for each stick once the spec is agreed with the customer.

Yes unfortunately there will be customs charges for some. This is outside of my control, but I always try to look up duties when I quote postage rates to give people the best idea of total cost that I can.

If I might have a bit of opinion,
it would be nice with a design that had a slanted front that would hopefully be more ergonomic. That would probably be a larger and more expensive design, but one that would interest me.

In particular something very close to "The Arcade Professional" would be cool.

Why does it say you need a 3rd party interface to use it on a CD32?

If it runs on the A500, A600, then surely it will run in two button mode on the CD32 ?!?

something worth talking about perhaps just in terms of there being seemingly comparable difference is that some of the more established joysticks of the day joysticks like zipstick and competition pro were effortless in hitting all directions. It was just something I never even thought about but having bought a couple of joysticks recently with sanwa parts, I've discovered that I simply can't always do that with sanwa especially 100% with diagonals. Even the modern day competition pro remake a while back manages all directions effortlessly as well but I do struggle with sanwa

I case of getting used to of course but are all arcade part based joysticks like this in that it's easy to miss the direction more?

I prefer the feel and lesser noise of the sanwa joysticks I have to the frankly noisy competition remakes but I just took it for granted that a sanwa would operate the same and it clearly doesn't from my experience with it

I've also put in an 8 way with no difference so I'm guessing this is just how they are?
