The AWUK American style joystick is a good quality joystick that is fitted with reliable Acemake microswitches with 4.8 mm terminals and is manufactured from high tenacity nylon, making it lightweight, yet extremely durable. This joystick is similar in design to the Happ Super joystick and is 4 or 8 way adjustable. The 4 or 8 way mode can be changed by simply flipping over the plastic actuator at the time of assembly. The AWUK American style joystick has a tear drop style handle, which is available in red or black. The handle will not unscrew and is fixed, as it is injection moulded onto the shaft of the joystick. A black shaft cover and dust cover is also included with each joystick. This joystick has a very nice feel and features a short throw, so makes contact with the microswitches with a gentle movement of the handle, which translates to easy, accurate movement during gameplay.
