I will preface by saying that this is my favorite N64 controller by far. It is very comfortable to hold, the buttons feel great, and the joystick is comfortable. I would highly recommend this controller to anybody who does not like the design of the original. However, there are a few flaws that if fixed, would make the controller even better. The first is the Z triggers. They have a lot of travel, which is unnecessary as they are digital buttons. According to Retro Fighters, the new 2.4 ghz wireless version of the Brawler64 will have updated Z triggers that "will have a more original "digital" press versus an "analog" pull", which is great to see, and I hope this comes to the wired version in the future. The second problem is the analog gates of the Joystick. While likely not to be noticed by many, the Joystick has a different analog gate than an original N64 controller. The Brawler64 has an perfect octagon, with all side lengths and angles being equal, while the N64 controller has an

Great Controller, works fine and seems to be as precise as the original N64 Controller. Z-Trigger on both sides makes total sense and was a good idea to implement. But you should consider to re-design the Z-Trigger itself. The way your finger needs to pass in order to press the button is too long and not very suitable for shooters.

This is my third controller and I intend to buy a fourth (and maybe the full set). It’s not perfect, but it’s the best option out there. If the issues I have are fixed in a V2, I will be buying a full set of those as well. The Good: - Accurate analog stick - Excellent D-Pad - Comfortable - Long cable The Bad - Z on both triggers is confusing - Expansion slot has death grip - Analog triggers unnecessary Would Love to See V2 With: - Wireless option - Built-in rumble - Ability to map R button to trigger - Expansion slot w/o death grip - More traditional Z triggers (PS1 style instead of Xbox)

The pad is excellent. I'd say it's weakest point is the d-pad.

The brawler is a great controller, it's my favorite 3rd party controller for the N64. I wish I had a right thumb stick though.
