Back to MagicPad TwinStar 2nd Gen (Mobapad M6S/M6 HD): A Game-Changing Alternative to JoyCon Controllers


I got a pair recently, and I’m blown away. For real. I’ve been waiting on joycon like this all generation long. They’re PERFECT! No cut corners or missing features or the all so annoying “regular dated rumble”, it’d got it all. The Rear mappable buttons, mechanical omron switches, incredibly good d-pad with rocker to swap with, good battery life and ergonomics, HALL Effect analogs and gyro that’s just as good as official joycon… it’s a dream come true. Seriously. I never wanna use another joycon again.

Even bought a 2nd pair to use as a Pro Controller (I disassembled the official Nintendo charge grip to get just the middle slab), and I ordered a pair of the Mobapad M6 S to get colored faceplates and d-pad to swap with. Even ordered the M9 HD, Chitu HD and Huben to get various colored and sized analog sticks to swap with.

I swapped the left joycon analog with the wider, grey right analog from M9 HD pro controller, so that both bow have a wider grey analog on the left for movement, and the smaller, grippier white analog on the right for aiming. Hope to see colored analogs and faceplates sold soon.
