    Hori's Gamecube-ish Wii pad, how good is it?

    I'm thinking of getting this for use with a Mayflash usb adapter (the one that takes the wii-mote plug end), I don't know much about Hori's products but this looked pretty interesting. But I wanna know more details, preferably from someone who already has one so I can get a second hand opinion and not just guesses. I want to know how well this controller is for both 3D games and 2D platforming games. I've only played with a GC controller at a friends (Soul Calibur 2, Smash Brothers Melee), and other than having a tiny Dpad it seemed like a comfortable controller (for the games it was made for anyway). I wanna know the following so I may make an informed decision: 1: Dpad on the Hori appears to be larger than GC's, is it and how accurate is it for rotations / straight diagonals? Can you still comfortably play 2D platform games with it in the position it is in? 2: How tight are the analog sticks, no looseness (ie: wobbly tops)? 3: Are 'Start Select and Home' metal clickers (like the stock Classic Controller) or are they normal rubber membrane buttons? 4: How good do the YXBA's feel for say, Super Mario World, where you'd hold Y to run and flex and hit B with the butt of your thumb to jump? 5: How good do the L and R and zL / zR triggers feel? (I remember the one Z on original Gamecube being somewhat stiff)

    yes you will find very few that own that here especially with the traffic here lately.

    i would go ahead and buy it but it is hard to find people who fix 3rd party stuff; if it breaks early after regular use you know you have a bad product...

    Hmmmm......that pad looks sweet, only questions i have is:

    What's the name of this pad?
    What's better this or classic pad pro? (with ps handles)

    If its cheaper than the pro pad ill consider buying.
    I'll make any gfx request via PM


    Signatures that i've made previously, they are about 150px in height, so I've spoilered them.
    Spoiler Alert!

    Looks are one thing, I wanna know how it feels and how well it performs... And really it isn't that surprising, it's just a gamecube pad (that happens to plug into the bottom of the Wii-mote) with better shapped YXBA's, an extra Z button and Select and Home buttons and a C stick that's a full top not a small yellow nub.

    I dont like the look of the x,b,y,a buttons, they seem very loose/soft

    Personal preference I think... The fact that it can be connected to the Wiimote is a plus for me... But Ive never had a good experience with third party controllers.

    oh no I didn't mean it [and or intend it in a bad way] its just like you said you like helping out the community and that's awesome bro but alright sorry for the offense

    and got it back on topic. if its a third party remote which from the looks of it kinda is then don't buy it because these products usually suck but then again this controller still looks bad ass
