'Boomerang' CD32 controller?

Anyone seen/used these? Saw one on ebay, that's the first I've heard of them.

Looks like the CD32-pad that was available from HoneyBee dropped in a box with watercolors. 1 meter cable is a major turnoff, though...

I have win a Boomerang on EBAY (also, selled by Iormulat, who has a very good Amiga shop in Poland http://www.efunzine.com), and now I'm waiting for it (Well, I have a CD32 and I don't have a pad!! , actually I play with a Mega Drive pad) As I have been told it is a very good pad and it's better than original Pad, and also, as you can see, you can plug on it some accessories, like a little stick or a "ball". I don't know why, but you can only find this pad on eastern shops.

Yours,

Here are the pics. They are not very good (made with a Samsung SCD-33 of 1999), but you can see well the pad

Yours,

I haven't played any CD32 games for a while, how much is the (very small on this pad) green button used?
And what are the L+R buttons like?

In this pad, L-R (REW-FWD) are like the little buttons. CD32 games usually use most buttons.

Of all the buttons in CD32 games, Red, blue and yellow are used most, some games used the green and shoulder buttons as well. Although I think the tiny buttons would be a bit odd, this still looks like the best option for CD32 owners who can't find or afford a Competition Pro pad.
