I replaced my joysticks years ago and I am pretty happy with them HOWEVER, I am concerned about the dead zone on the new sticks. I know there is software to test the X and Y axis values on your sticks but I have to such software.

Anyone have a recommendation on good brands for replacement sticks? Im not a fan of the GameCube style looking ones. Prefer to have as close to the original as possible and with good "range" so to speak. Id post pictures of the one I have but the uploader doesnt work
