Whats it worth? Suncom Starfighter Joystick

Post by Lardo Boffin » Fri Aug 17, 2018 6:06 am

I finally managed to get a Tac-2 joystick to complete my wife’s original C-64 setup and I have to say it is an impressive bit of kit. Definitely the best digital joystick I have ever used - it even passes the Ghouls test (I can get off level 1 using it! :D ).

Very nice!

It came with a Starfighter joystick which I don’t need and as I personally don’t like joysticks for anything but Elite will be getting rid of to help reduce the cost (these came from USA) but I have never seen one for sale and have no idea what it might be worth. :shock:
I don’t particularly like auctions of eBay having sold some stuff for way below what it was worth so would like to put it on at a fixed price but get rid fairly quickly so I can pay the VISA bill.
Any ideas?

£17.50?

Other sold prices seem to be around the same, in the UK and the US.

Thanks. Was hoping a bit closer to £30 or so. Hey ho!

Welp, you can ask for £30 and see if anyone bites..? I know sometimes things go for less than we'd like, but the value of anything is only what anyone's prepared to pay for it at any given time.

I have put in on here for £15 and if nobody is interested I will try my luck on eBay. You never know on that site.
