Just received mine in the mail today - looks like USPS are fast crossing the Atlantic!
Installation was a cinch, although I put it on crooked a few times. Finally I got it on quite straight, well very slightly off but I think it's good enough for now.
Feel with the joystick was greatly improved, but it's quite different from before: where I used to push the joystick in one direction I now pull by pushing the cap edge. The larger contact surface reduces the chance of mistakes; it no longer goes in a direction even if I don't ensure an accurate press.
Only (minor) gripe, which is probably just me anyway, was the difficulty in getting it on straight
Just an update to what I wrote before: as I mentioned, the mod improves the feel a lot. However, my mate, who was interested in getting one for himself, tried mine out and didn't think the same. He has smaller thumbs than mine, though. So I could infer that this mod might not be so suitable for people with smaller hands.
Also, I've noticed my 'left' and 'up' aren't as responsive as before (need harder push)... I think I damaged my joystick while installing it, so I advise fellow buyers to install it carefully, (try to get it striaght the first time, I needed a few tries).
fiish, are you sure the joystick is seated correctly? I've had caps on and off of my joystick probably 50 times, literally, and have not had any change in sensitivity. Sometimes when I pull one off, the joystick lifts up and doesn't seat itself correctly. When this happens, it doesn't work right, until I wiggle it around and get it to seat properly.
Hey guys, I'm just about out of them right now, so I'm not going to relist them yet. I've been really busy lately and I probably will continue to be, but I'm hoping I can get a chance to make more next weekend. So I think there's a good chance I'll have them relisted by next Monday.
