UPDATE(1/4/21): The material for this part has changed to a translucent resin. This is to increase the impact resistance of the stick as well as to strengthen the threads. Threadlocker such as loctite is recommended to keep the bolt from stripping the threads.
Ever wanted the look of a Steelstick and just couldn't afford one? Now you can with resin printed capless sticks. Customize your N64 controller by pairing a capless stick with custom cap from SteelSticks64. These capless sticks are already drilled and tapped so you don't have to do any drilling or sanding. Just screw on your cap and install the stick into the module.
DISCLAIMER: Capless stick comes alone; you must buy the caps separately from SteelSticks64.
How does the stick feel?
The rough looking texture is quite magnified in the picture. Despite it's appearance, this capless stick does not feel much different than the original.
Why make the stick slim?
Making the stick slimmer than an OEM part allows for more range on the N64 controller which is beneficial for competitive games like SSB64. The range on this stick is around 95 compared to an OEM stick with a range of 80-85.
