When I see these discussed, they have a name like Cirka attached to them rather than Yobo. Perhaps they realize their reputation and tried to distance themselves from it with this newer version.
Sadly, I see more bad reviews at various sources when I've looked after reading your praise in a few threads here than good. Any idea how many hours you've invested into it yet? You mentioned more than once about how quickly their feel changes. But while breaking in quickly and feeling better afterwards is fine, it may not be so great if it doesn't stick around in that sweet spot for very long before the quickly changing conditions in the stick mechanism and such start to create control issues.
I see on StoneAgeGamer that it appears he even clearanced them out at $12 and no longer stocks them. While I may be reading too much into that, it doesn't look promising from such a popular retailer of new products for classic gaming fans.
