Weird controller, The Power Stick by Amiga for Colecovision!

Update: I've spent some quality time with the Power Stick and I find it surprisingly comfortable to hold, much more than my Wico Command Control for Colecovision. It's response and accuracy are excellent and the buttons are comfortatable and intuitive to use. The buttons on the Wico are stiff as hell. The only gripe I have is that my thumb got a bit sore from the hard plastic stick and actually left an impression on my thumb. But I fixed that problem with a soft rubber nub. They should have done something like this in the original design.
