    I was wondering the pros and cons of going from the dual controls to a slick stick. I like the idea of only having one switch vs two for versatility of mounting, but is it jsut as easy to use?

    I currently have a dual switch.

    Thanks in advance for your idea's and comments.

    I've got the slick stik, never used the dual controls, but I would think learning the stick is easier than learning the dual. It took me about 5 minutes to master the slick stik.

    My first plow truck had the dual controls, now I use a Western small elec. joystick. Both work great, I don't see many advantages to the slickstick over the bump controls.

    i changed my twin stick over to the single stick.meyers i like it alot oasionally it needs the the contacts adjusted and cleaned,and it won't float and angle at the same time, but i'll never go back to the twinn. good luck.
