What more can we say. Except, that we have been using this joystick for several years without any problem.
What does 'competition' joystick mean?
That is the style of joystick used for such fighting games as Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. It is a fast stick with a spring return. It has a knob or bat top, rather than a ball top. And, the knob has a roughened surface.
All of these features add up to an easily controlled joystick that a player can operate with the front, back, or palm of their hand. These are the features that enable speed, agility, and accuracy and mean the difference between life and death.

Maintenance: Eventually, dust and dirt will find its way into the bushing area of any joystick. Or, a spilt cola will be the culprit. The result will be a sluggish or rough joystick.
Sometimes, the cure will simply be several squrts of Windex followed by a few squirts of WD40, or other spray lubricant, directed at the base of the shaft into the bushing area.
