AROUND WITH THE CHAMP
A RECENT IMPORT from the United States is the Super Champ joystick. What makes it unusual is that the cable is held in the base. For use the cable is pulled out and, when you have finished, rotating the stick rewinds the cable inside.
The stick is long and thin and has two fire buttons, one on top and one in the trigger position, both of which operate the same switch.
Unfortunately, there is an undue amount of play in the pivot and the stick is a little stiff. That makes precise control difficult unless you hold down the centre.
The Super Champ is priced at £12.95 from Dean Electronics Ltd, Glendale Park, Fernbank Road, Ascot, Berks SL5 8JB.
