Thanks for the precision

I should be supposed to know a bit of that but plastics study really did not kept me attentive in school.

Sorry for the late reply. I am not familiar with soldering at all, so that's why I was hesitant to buy a stick that I would need anything else other than a screwdriver to fix up for playing tgm. I still haven't made a purchase, but as I am doing stick research I keep referencing this thread so I can get the best possible purchase for myself. Thanks again for all the ideas and help everyone, you've made getting into tgm way easier for a n00b like myself.

For what it's worth I switch the restrictor gate in my stick from 4-way to a completely separate octo-gate all the time and have never had any issues with the gate breaking in any way *knocks on wood*

Well, I think I cursed myself with my last post. After holding for over a year and countless 4/8 switches, the second clip finally broke.

The rubber bands hold the inner part just fine, but it is ever so slightly wobbly. The plastic clips applied more pressure than the rubber bands, keeping it firmer in place. But I don't notice a difference while playing. Plus changing between 4 and 8 way now only takes 5 seconds.
