...how do you hold them? Do you place them on a table, or hold it in your left/right hand in your lap?

After playing for a while (especially fast paced games like KO2), my hands hurt. Is it a problem with the joystick (Comp Pro/Zip Stick), or is it just me not being used to handling the joystick anymore?

(Dirty replies are unwelcome. :P)

You'll probably find you're just out of practise (oo-er!). I found the same thing when I started playing games with a microswitched stick again (Comp Pro USB). You do get used to it!
