Some years ago it was invented the Dremel...

Yes, your Avatar was like my face...

Edit: And for that price they could add a 3rd button.

No we cannot, we know the costs of all the components, and the margins are *very* small: we are only doing this because no other new Amiga joysticks are available and project is a result of listening to our customer requests for this product.

We cannot afford to sell this at a loss...

Well it's not exactly an incompatibility issue. They should just state it needs extender cables or something. This way it looks like it's a hardware (electronic) problem.

I really like the look of this stick, not sure if I want a left-handed or right-handed version.

I'm currently using an AmiKit converted PC joypad, it works well but my daughter can't use it (too young).

Although I'm right handed, I think I'll wait for the left-handed version (which is what arcade machines do).

That Skorpion stick looks cheap (in a bad way). I bet I would break it in 10 minutes!

It seems they've reduced the price a bit. Now €59.96 to Europe.

Yep Nova, left handed is better for me too.

My Skorpion stick is still alive. Plastic is cheap and base is too big, it's just toy to show kids at school

Nice piece ... no right-handed version so buy ?

Is the stick the same type, accuracy than the Sega Arcade stick for example ?
