Who is using which joypad?

Are you playing with a "normal" XBOX pad, or do you use the "S" (japanese) version.
I only use the "S" version, I just cannot cope with this giant normal pad. And even the "S" pad could be A LOT improved!

(I really loved that DC-joypad, the best one ever made)
Fighting for the spirit of SEGA!!!

I prefer the original, the small ones is too puny for my giant man-hands

The only thing I dont like about this big one is how the buttons are like balls, which can be a hinderance for some games.
They speak of my drinking, but never of my thirst.

I know everyone rags on the Xbox controller but it is very comfortable to me. I don't have gorilla hands either. It is more comfortable than the DC controller even though they are similar in over all design. I tried the S-Controller it doesn't feel as good to me but I will have to get used to it I suppose. One of my left triggers is acting up on one of my controllers.

I like the normal one but I've got a Controller S ready for Xmas. The standard one is great but it feels major cheap and wears out fast.

I'm back to using the Duke(big one) controller. I first went back to using it because one of the analog sticks on my S started to stick. I took the S apart and cleaned the contacts and it worked good for about a week and started to stick agian. I'm back to using the Duke and after extended periods of using both, I like the Duke better. The perfect Xbox controller for me would be to have one sized in-between the Duke and the S, with all six face buttons lined up like the Saturn pad. Oh well, the Duke is still one of the better pads out there. The S has a better D-pad for fighting games, but now that I have my Hori DOA3 Joystick, I'm set for fighting games and have no need for the S anymore.
