    Just got one of Max's joytick mods for my w800...and I'm remarkably pleased with it.
    First of all, I'm in the UK and it arrived here within THREE DAYS of me paying for it - so very well done for that, Max!

    Second, and more importantly, the mod itself works just great. I used to have problems with the joystick being a bit to sensitive about which direction you pushed it in (often mistaking "mostly-up" for left or right) and I don't get that any more, it makes the joystick a lot more forgiving of careless pushing.

    Third, the phone just looks nicer!

    So thank you very much, Max - I promised the folks on the Esato Sony-Ericsson forums I'd let them know how my "brave experiement" went, and I'll be giving you a full 10/10!

    Thanks for the reviews!

    BTW how do you make it, do you have the smallest milling machine in the world?
    Although a lathe would be the expected machine tool to use for such a part, since I didn't have access to a CNC one, I did use a milling machine in a rather unorthodox manner! I held the metal in the spindle and clamped the tools to the table.

    Can anyone post some pictures of the k750i with the new model of this joystick?
    I know there are pictures with it on just the joystick, but a better picture with the new one would be awesome for those that are considering the new one over the old.

    The second picture from the top is a very clear picture of the new model on a k750 joystick. The old model he no longer offers.

    OK, I relisted some more:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MESE%3AIT&rd=1

    StuPC: Nice pics!

    cow07: I'm sorry, I don't have other pics of the new one on a k750 joystick, and that's about the best my lame camera could do. Hopefully someone else can post some.

    P.S. I do have some of the 1st gen. caps also, and I am willing to sell them. I prefer the 2nd gen caps, though, because they are almost guaranteed to fit. Since they are open all the way through, they can push on as far as they need to snug up on the tapered joystick. The 1st gen caps are still good though. There have only been a couple of people who had them not fit. So there's probably a 95% chance that they will fit any given joystick. (The 2nd gens have fit everybody's)

    So yes, I still will sell the 1st gen ones. Especially to people that had the orange dot fall out of their joystick!

    Well I got mine in the mail today. Took only 3 days to get to Toronto, thx Max. Anyways it fits like charm. The cap makes the joystick feel really smooth and soft. Little to no pressure to toggle it around. Its also make the joystick feel rounder, and lets your thumb sits comfortably. Took about a minute to get use to it. If you play a lot of games with the joystick....like I do on the subway.....you'll love it. Its makes the movements more reponsive, faster, smmother ... and overall less effort is required. Really impressed what this little cap can do. Highly recommended. Heres a pic I took with my sharp. I'll post some up close macro shoots later.

    Mine hasn't, and I carry my phone around in various pockets all the time.
