Re: Joystick Killer
I had the variety of joysticks that we all did before I finally settled on the Powerplay Cruiser. This thing was built from steel parts.
It had a great semi soft feel, it looked bleugh in the pastel colours (I think there were other version but this was cheapest).
All the switches were microswitched, the shaft was steel, the base ring (where the shaft attached), was solid steel, you could lever bank vaults open with this thing.
It was worth every penny, and I think I eventually managed to break it after 3 years (by standing on it in steelies), bought another one, and that was my last joystick.
It also had a turnable ring at its base, which allowed you to stiffen up the movement. Once the first broke, I took it apart (how else was I supposed to learn how things worked????), and was impressed by its build quality.
