Competitions, Suzos and Wicos pop up un ebay quite reguarely. Never had a Wico stick, but they have a good reputation. The Suncom sticks are harder to get, US ebay is the best place to check out -> Suncom was very popular with the old Atari Consoles. I consider it practically impossible to get one of the Greek joysticks like Tomahawk or original metal version of CMS. The closest one gets to one of those is when (normally) loosing to a Greek player :wink:

i used to play on quickoy II turbo, and on quickjoy topstar. those 'sticks are best for me.

it seems that i've finaly found proper cable and a pair of topstars :)


I think the USB Competitions are worse in quality than the old original models. Just googeled up the Topstar - wild looking thing. Hope to see that one in action one day!

Appreciate the suggestions, Mike. I'll explore further, including the Greek tip! :lol:

would very much like to see this thread revived, I've become a complete joystick addict and find it very interesting to hear others thoughts on their sticks.

I hold the stick so found the tac-2 really comfortable to hold but love the feel of a cms so i made a a tac-2/cms hybrid. it's a tac-2 housing with cms insides and handle.
