Personally, I prefer the arcade-style JAMMA joystick I purchased from The Goat Store a few years back. Due to its odd shape and blue bat handle, it's known to friends as the "clownpenis" joystick.
What joysticks do you guys prefer??
No question about it. The Tac-2 is the best controller of its type, hands down.
[QUOTE=Alienblue]Ever since the 80's, on my VCS and Colecovision, my fave Atari type stick was the Spectravideo SLIK-STIK (sometimes called SKIL-STIK).... I still have the box I bought it in new in 1983 and it still works fine! I have a bag of sticks now including Tac-2 and Wico, but I still like the Slik stik. It has a big bat handle (with a fire button on top if you want it) and a comftorble curved base. It also has suction cup feet that are totally uselless, but I overlook that. For handheld play, this is the best![/QUOTE]
I remember the Spectravideo sticks. The handles were so tip heavy, we would hold them by the base and vibrate the handle back and forth when playing Track and Field and actually max out the 100m record.
