Hey I like cats, bring them on! I was just kidding about the mouse and stuff. It's just that I don't think I'll take it if someone defeats me with a quickshot jstick. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">

Oh Vasilis Vasilis - quote:"I don't think I could take it if I got beat by someone with a Quickshot??????"
What are you saying about people who use Quickshots???? If you are ALL going to gang up on me I won't come to the tournament <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">
Seriously though I never got on with any other type of joystick. I tried them but they just don't move as well.

Camber I do not want to know about the steel shafts you have bought from dodgy shops, better keep that one between you and your wife!

Am I the only one that uses a Cruiser?

They are pretty durable, and straightforward to repair. I have three, one of which has lost the suckers.

Another question - who is a table-sticker and who is a hand-holder? I am a table-sticker.

I'm a table-sticker too. I think this gives you the best control over the jstick. If you play with a jpad though, I think hand-holding is more reliable.

Definetly on the table.
The suctions pads on my QS2 have long gone, so I am currently using a multitude of elastic bands!

Definitely a table man. Need a good solid surface too, nothing wobbily will do, cos it takes a beating !

Robert, I am a table sticker as well.

The little tabs on the bottom of my C-Pro 5000's have all faded away so the table grip is poor now.
