I was wondering if anyone here has tried these out?  They look like a fantastic use of the Pro-Line Joystick model.

Hi MalakZero,

 

thanks for the nice compliment, i am the one who engineered the CX-30 Evolved paddle controllers.

 

they are out right now, i need to get more built. they work well, and are a bit faster than the original paddle controller. i was almost out of the original paddle controllers, when i thought about all of the Atari 7800 controllers i had left, and what to do with them? then i got a idea to convert them into dual-button paddle controllers.

 

it took a while to find the right pots to use, you cannot use the original ones very well, they work, but just barely, it's tough to get them just right.

 

then there was the glue problem. but in the end, it all came together, and voila! i engineered them, patent pending and all.

 

i bought 1000s of proline joysticks from Atari, that were customer returns from Atari. at one time i thought "what am i going to do with all these?" today with the original paddle controllers disappearing, the CX-30 evolved selling, best electronics gold upgrades, my 7800 grip stick upgrade which requires a proline joystick cable, and another project i am looking at that will require more proline parts, i can see the end coming much much sooner than i ever thought.

 

thanks for your interests  :invader:

 

 

Lance

I know that anything coming from Lance will be top-notch. I have been dealing with him since 1998 without any issues. I do wonder how these controllers slipped by me? I can say that the Grip Stick is a much needed accessory for the ProSystem.

I have known Lance since 1995. He has never steered me wrong. Good guy, that Lance. :O)

Aaron, have you tried sending email to Lance? He’s been responsive whenever I send email to place an order. I bought mine a couple of months ago but it didn’t show as back ordered then.

Lance is active in the forums here as well, I'm sure he'll see this. @Video 61
