I have already went through the trouble of making mine function like new. If I had it to do over again, I would have already hit the BIN on these. I bought most of my controls cheap, and rebuilt them. In almost every case, I wish I would have just bought NOS and been done with it.

Notice that no one has bidded on them yet.    Thats way over priced.   I got a box (lot) of wico 8 way sticks and leaf buttons on ebay for around $60 shipped.    If thats what they are going for now, guess I should put them on ebay. hahaha

Price isn't far off (remember, value is what people are willing to pay), but I remarked on another board today that it may be less to pick up a cab with the same sticks (I got my JAMMAtized Robo cab, sans boards, for about the price of a set of 4" joystick shafts).

Also need to factor in the grommets and cleanup ... not cheap.

So, good grab on the purchase. If you want to sell without the eHassle(tm), drop me a line!

How about a set of NOS Rotary sticks for $699.00?

And there Discounted WOW! Those games are cool but cant stand the continue play, Wish all games had 1 quarter play only! i did that for one game and completed the entire game then never played it again!

Is this the going rate for WICO's :lol

The starting bid of $75 is about what the 4" sticks go for. (Not the 3.5" sticks).

Check again ;)

I saw. And only one person was willing to pay it. I consider that not market-representative.
