does the analogue controller stick re-set or is it free floating?

Vectrex question...

It resets to the center and it's pretty nice.  However, I'm not completely sure it's analog.  I had a reader tell me recently that the Odyssey joysticks are not analog, which was news to me.  Maybe it's the feel of these sticks that makes me think they are analog, since they have a lot of "give".

The Vectrex controller is analog, but only a very few games use the analog capability.  Here is some useful information on the Vectrex controller http://vectrex.classicgaming.gamespy.com/po_digital-analog.htm.  I just ordered two modified sega genesis controllers and Moon Lander from http://www.classicgamecreations.com/ which I am looking forward to.
