EVO Product line
The stick is really solid and smooth. The springs as fitted though were way too heavy. Changed with supplied lighter springs and the stick now feels perfect for my flight sim.
The plastic feels so nice, so much easier to learn a mirrored dual stick layout than a throttle and the omni adapter helps make the left make sense for 6DOF. Only problem is all the bindings you find online are for the premium sticks and I cheaped out on the standard. I think this is a must buy for any simmers not wanting to spend over a thousand on HOTAS.
Very happy with the VKB product Gladiator EVO. Delivery was super fast, it took 30hours after clicking buy to be in my hand. It was very well packaged and easy to assemble. Feels great in the hand and very well made. Thanks you
That's great you are a keen supporter of VKB.

My Vkb gladiator is soooooo good, I really hope that it stays as smooth and responsive as it is now.
We thank you for choosing VKB as your first HOTAS and the positive feedback.
