    What everyones favorite? I have the twin in one truck and the touch in another. I dont have alot of feeling in my fingers and sometimes its hard to feel the raised parts on the touch pads. Would the JoyStick be worth it to change too?

    I've always liked the twin stick. With a manual trans I mount them on the shifter. With my current truck they're mounted right where my hand is with my arm on the center arm rest.

    I used a joystick one time but switched it out before the next snow. I don't like that you can't angle the plow without taking it out of float. I like to drop the plow and adjust the angle as I'm moving.

    Never used a touch pad.

    Ya I am thinking I will keep the twin setup and I am gonna turn the Touch pad truck over to my GF to drive. Maybe she will like it better.

    all joysticks here. have had all 3 and like the slick stick the best. also it is the best for a manual. it has a bracket that bolts onto the shifter and then its a one finger controller.

    myers also has a pistol grip, I just ordered on. I am tired of the touch pad. I had the joystick with the manual tranny, that worked out great. Now I have an auto.

    I taped my toggle switches together and hold it in my right hand.. I can shift gears, raise lower right left, without stopping to reach for the shifter. All one motion.. I love it that way. 1 finger and thumb operate the plow.. that's it.
