This deluxe joystick from 1984 was a best selling products from Spectravideo. It fit most popular games and computer sistems (Atari, Commodore, NEC among others). It featured a trigger fire button on the front to let your thumb take a rest -this was perceived as a innovation because fire buttons were comonly placed on top of the stick. Still, this model featured a primary shooting button that curved sleeky around the top. Another features to make your gaming more comfortable were the auto fire switch described on the packaging to “unleash a continual stream of bullets”, a new improved ultra-ergonomic grip and build-in stabilizing suction cups -described as a “revolutionary feature that makes simple hand video game play possible”. This joystick is hard- wired to a equally over-featured Clock Radio.
