Good !

The blue stick of joy is now in Ireland, all I have to do is travel 130km to collect it :( Will do that on Christmas Eve.

Thanks.

So the competition pro was sitting waiting for me since Monday.I finally was able to collect it today.

Look at the quality, it's amazing. The chrome knob is polished and will act as a mirror to distract my opponents. The microSwitches click loudly as if it was born yesterday.

Today, Christmas Eve 2014 I will play Ko2 for the first time in 10(?) years.

Congrats, just looks like the one that made me beat Turrican 2 with 30 lives+ back in the day :hors: These days I like them less flashy though, quiet ... and deadly :wink:

First things first, the usb adapter has driver issues with Mac Os X. I can use it on Windows but that's not the solution I was hoping for.

Secondly, the blue stick of pleasure is incompatible with me. The mini firebutton at the base of the shaft is continually getting in the way. I have tried holding this stick in my palm and using a table as a base but neither offer a comfortable fit. Perhaps a bit of Vaseline might do the trick but it's a last resort effort.

I do however have 2 speedKings on the way.I've always felt that the smaller SpeedKing shaft fitted more comfortably!

Bummer about the pleasure-stick Danny. Bring it to a tourney though, so I can try it, and possibly release you from it :)

I fear the shaft will also be too large for you too ! Have you taken a shaft of this size before ?

An option is to open up the stick and disable the pesky little firebutton.

That is indeed an option however whether it's disabled it not my "fire finger" is brushing off it and this isn't optimal!!!

Shaft is way cool man. I'm not sure I'd enjoy it, but would like to try the chromed stick of pleasure, to see if it's a match for the Greek stick.
