SUZO 500 Rubber edition

SUZO rubber grommet

I was browsing eBay and found a SUZO 500 that had gray plastic at the base instead of the red I normally find in arcade parts stores online. I know that joystick guru Kowal has mentioned that there used to exist an older revision of these sticks that had a rubber grommet doing all the …

NEW design! The yellow and black is very nice, but I thought it was time for a new look. Kinda has an EGRET III vibe going on. Also had a look at the links on my misc page and removed those who sadly no longer work + added a few that does. Also, during these …
