This super-sensitive, two-trigger joystick is nearly one-and-a-half times as tall as the little black ones from Atari. Produced by Wico, the oversized red plastic handle is not nearly as grippy as the Atari sticks but it’s elongated teardrop stick fits more comfortably in your hand. The best feature is the second button. One is the usual red button in the upper left corner of the base and the other is small white pencil eraser style button at the tip of the joystick. The top button gives the controller a more authentic arcade feel especially for space games. Wico must be one of the greatest companies in the art of developing joysticks. After "The Boss" they made this one.
