Logitech sticks are meant to be thrown away. If your logitech starts spiking, toss it.

I have never seen anything so overly-engineered in my life. To top it off, they use the cheapest potentiometers ever made.

I need a new stick.

One word: SAITEK.

S!

Saitek is smooth and precise but they also wear. About a week ago I purchased my 3rd one (this time an Evo) in 5 years, I have no choice because I'm lefty. Joystick manufacturers have a long way to go. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Its too bad really, my favorite stick of all time is the Wingman digital. Small, responsive, and easily accessible buttons. A sharp contrast to the large size and akward button placement of the Saitek.

I just had them send me a replacement Wingman every time it broke. 4 replacements during the warranty period. The last one lasted quite a while, as I cleaned it regularly.

Arcadeace, here's what I ended up doing: http://www.chproducts.com/retail/usb_flight_stick.html

Been quite happy with actually. Even though it's no fighterStick.

It may cost as much as a 9800XT, but a CH HOTAS setup is sweet! I wore out 3 Saiteks before I broke down and bought CH. I'll never go back! Here's a hint if you do buy less expensive sticks: get them at Best Buy and get the replacement warranty for about $7.00. That way you just grab a new one off the shelf when you wear one out.
