I got some "as is" super actions on an auction recently. Well when I plugged them in they didn't want to go in certain directions. Turns out there was a few arms broken on an octopus like white piece of plastick that pushes the contacts down. Well, I took that piece right out, put it back together and voila. Super Action with a very tight response. That's more than I can say for the trigger buttons though. Thought I'd post this in case someone else had a busted pair.

I'm about to dive into a pair of these beauties I just got. Mine work fine for directional stuff, but have some wonky buttons like you describe.

I'm hoping that the switches are similar in some way to reg cv controller side switches. If so, WD-40 does wonders for improving response.

Any tips or pitfalls you want to warn me about before I dive in? Never been inside SA controllers before.

On a side note, aren't these COOL! They 'feel' soooo much better, and have have a beautiful long cord! They look kinda goofy, like some kinda whack ass gauntlet, but they are perfect for grown up hands.

The colored triggers internal switches are the same design as a reg CV controller. This means a small squirt of WD 40 to the inside of the switch assembly should make a button responsive again.

It did for mine. :-D

I will give the WD40 a try, thanks
