Type "joystick" into the Find tab and you can read all the past threads on this subject.

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

I prefer the origional Sidewinder force feed back. Yeh it's big and bulky and hard to get hold of now but I find the grip is comfortable and all of the buttons and POV hat are easy to use and close to hand. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'll tell you what I tell everyone else:

Saitek X45. You won't be dissapointed.

I agree with Aerick, if you want a good honest stick with a seperate throttle unit at a good price, you can't beat the X45.....had one for years and before that the gameport version of the X36.......... will bring a whole new way to flightsims

X45 is over-rated/ over-priced. I crap-canned mine for a Wingman Force Feedback.

The big fat dead-zone of the X45 is intolerable.

I would go with a Saitek. Not the x45 though as it has limited handspace (not friendly for those who have larger hands.)

Two good sticks at good prices. Either one makes a good choice.
