    Hiya,

    The original Sony analogue stick was a problem for me so I bought that armour stick set last week off ebay from a guy in Scotland. You can also get them from PSPTree - http://www.psptree.co.uk/item--Soft-rubber-joystick-4-pcs--PSP110.html

    Got to say they are so much better than Sony's stick. You get a nice smooth surface instead of knobley one!

    The only problem you will find is that you can only use one of the sticks in the pack if you are going to use the Playgear Pocket. The smallest stick is the same size as the Original Sony stick and will fit in the Playgear Pocket, the rest of the sticks go up in size higher and wider with each one!

    You wont regret buying the set though. Very useful.

    Cheers,
    Z.

    Yeah, they are easily replaceable, they just slip on and off (pulling upwards if the PSP is laying with it's back to the table).

    I just bought that pack from Lik-Sang. It's only 5 quid inc delivery so what have I got to lose? I do agree that the nub could be a bit bigger.

    I picked up my PSP the other day to find that my nub had gone AWOL! I was gutted, but eventually found it in the bottom of my rucksack, it must have fallen of during my train journey from a weekend away with the missus.

    I didn't realise it was remvoable until it fell off :eek:

    I neve play games with the D-Pad (except fighting games) and it seems so primitive compared to Analogue control.

    A MUST BUY!

    If you want to play games with the analogue stick this is a must buy, amazingly simple but very effective.
    basically i can now use the nub

    Them rubber nubs from psptree look ideal for me. Most of the time I cant get a good grip and my thumb just slides off of the analogue stick, I've been wondering about rubber coatings and things, looks like problem solved :D

    Has anyone using a Logitech Playgear Pocket tried removing the upper rubber inner to see if the new nubs fit then? I was just thinking that I would cut a hole in the nub area of the rubber and refit it if it then allows the lid to be shut.

    got mine from psptree 2 days after ordering and i prefer the feel of them but moving up seems to be not as smooth as the other directions.im not saying all of them are like this but i have noticed it,a bigger pain in the arse is that i cant shut the logitech playgear lid in the lock position as the nub is much higher.

    Because I imagine that they might become lose the more times you take them out/put them back in etc. + lose they will be easy to lose.

    I got mine today and put on a stick to replace the nub - when I use it though with Pro Evo, the players just run down the screen as if the controller is stuck in one direction, pointing down. It moves around up, left and right but not down...any ideas???

    I've had these for a while, i like the concave ones myself, and they do make gripping much easier.

    I took a knife to mine and chopped the "stalk" in half. Basically so it still had enough length to full fit the bit that sticks out on the PSP, but remove enough to reduce the height. Very worth doing.

    Unfortunately i've split one from excessive SOCOMing, not sure if it was my hack-job or just stress on the rubber, but the next ones held up well!
