Competition Pro 5000

From Joystick Directory

Manufacturer's Information

  • User friendly handle and base for smoother, more accurate playing action.
  • Large, dual fire buttons for quick right- or left-hand operation.
  • 8-way arcade quality switches.
  • Extra long 5-foot cord.


"This has a very stout base in which two fire-buttons are set - there's no button on the stick itself. The large knob and short stick mean that this is one to hold in the palm and direct with short, sharp movements." Unscored

"The Pro 5000 has been the forefather of what all joysticks should be, sturdy, well-built, fully microswitched, highly responsive and extremely reliable." Unscored
