  1. Mine is the Suncom TAC2, it’s got to be the most responsive stick I have ever come across. Haven’t ever used a Konix Speedking, they look comfortable though.

  2. Konix Speedking was the mutt’s nuts back in the day. I still have a few these days for my various machines.

    No use for left-handers though.

  3. I have one of those, it’s fantastic. I also have a Cheetah Bug which sits in your hand like the Speedking and is just as good. I never got on with desktop joysticks…

    My favourite control method of all time is the keyboard, especially for those games which required pixel perfect positioning!

  4. I think my head would have to say the Competition Pro. A classic look and sturdy as a rock. Many people would put the Zip Stick as a superior version of this style of joystick but I never used that one. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Competition_pro_first_version_45deg.png

    But my heart would say the Konix Navigator. It’s a Marmite joystick in the same way the Speedking was (I didn’t like the Speedking) but for me it fit perfectly in my hand and was great for loads of games. It did give you big blisters though! No pain, no gain 😉 http://www.retro-kit.co.uk/user/custom/Commodore/Amiga/3rdParty/Konix/KonixNavigator2.jpg

  5. Classic Atari joystick for me. Quite like the speedking and Bug, but I refuse to use any desktop joystick with rubber suckers.. In short, they suck 😉
