To be honest, if it wasn't for the fact that my Wingman Strike Force 3D had more button on the stick part itself, I'd switch handles with my old joystick and use it instead.
For you button fanatics out there, this sucker has a whopping 9 buttons and two hat switches!
Technically, its got 6 buttons, but three of the "nine" total are in the scroll wheel mounted on the base. (1 button = scrolling forwards, 1 button = scrolling backwards, and 1 button = pushing down on the wheel itself.)
Its a really nice joystick. Definitely better than anything MS has to offer. After all, when was the last time you ever heard of a hat breaking on a Logitech stick?
(MS sticks have had that problem since they were first released.)
