Excellent Article F! The only thing that could make it better would have been to test it on a nice game of SWOS too Very Happy

When sensi first came out i was shite, and didn't much like it. Then I moved in with a weirdo who still plays 20 games a week... in 2005! And by my aunt fanny, I have been playing 20 games of SWOS a week on an A1200 ever since. i am so hooked it hurts. we have two aging zipsticks. but i just ordered two of these bad boys and we can emulate from now on. less loading time, which is good... except that i don't think we've turned the amiga off for three months, now.... EEK!

Damn, if this is a REAL Suzo stick, then it's just what I've always been looking for.

Only thing: I've still got my original Competition Pro (which I STILL use on my Atari's) and instead of microswitches, this one has a very simple construction of two metal blades which touch each other when you move the stick of push the button. It may look cheap and simple, in my opinion it's the best stick I've ever used because it's quicker then microswitches (has no "pressure point")....

But then, if this IS a real Suzo stick (and I will check with them Smile I'm from Holland too Smile ) then it's a must-have !!

I still havn't got round to blowing the dust off my SWOS CD and firing it back up again Sad I do remember putting in many hours a week on SWOS a few years back. It is a real addictive little game Smile

Short of opening it up, how do you think I can go about finding out if it is a real Suzo stick? It feels like it, tho... But then I *could* open it.
