Hi all,

I recently got out my original VCS from 1981 and got re-hooked, and the CX40 joysticks need work. I emailed Best and they no longer have any inner cores. There are some replacements at various sites, is there a durable one anyone can recommend?

Thanks

Not sure where you are located but just find a junk cx 40 and make sure the inner handle isn't broken or cracked and take it apart and use that one .

I've been using the ones from videogamesource.

They seem to be very good quality. It's cheaper to get the entire kit that comes with the rubber boot, fire button and spring and a new set of screws, but if you just need the inner handle, here's the link.

I've been very happy with everything I've bought from them. :-D

Wow I can't believe Best is out of White Cores. I guess they were bound to run out at some point. I am glad I bought refurb gold kits from them in 2016 when I got back in to this crazy hobby!

 

Nice that there are some other reliable sources that have been shared.

Best still lists the gold pcbs and full joysticks, just not the core.
