    I have a Slick Stick that's been worked to death...

    What are my controller upgrade options?..basically what fits into the plug I already have?

    classic mount e-47.

    You basically have no options as no other controller will plug into the SS connector plug. If your changing the controller style you'll have to change the control harness along with it.

    How cheap are they?
    And what product am I looking for?

    I would like to replace mine too.

    A handheld controller can be anywhere from $200-$275 depending on what and where you purchase. Figure approx another $60 or so for a control harness.

    The old school toggle setup will run you around $100.

    Not unless you first replace your control harness with the style for the Meyer touch pad first. Because thats the harness the UPC adapters "adapt" to.

    UPC doesn't make an adapter for the Slik Stik harness, you'll still need to change it.
