The AWUK 8 way ball top joystick features a large spring, sturdy metal mounting plate, 5cm long shaft and a ball top handle, which is available in a choice of colours. This joystick has a dedicated 8 way movement and is a great choice for various arcade machine builds or commercial/exhibition projects. The AWUK 8 way ball top joystick has a very good return to centre action, due to the oversize spring and also features a long shaft, which is approx 5cm in height. For those customers looking for a low cost, durable 8 way joystick with extra long shaft, this is a very good choice.

I find these to be much nicer than the zippy long handled joysticks. They have a very nice springy feel to them and feel very well made. The only downside is the choice of ball top colours, which come in red and black. More colour choices would be nice.
