These feel fantastic:

However, you'll see lots of comments on how they are "too sensitive" and other untechnical, somewhat unhelpful information.

It's because they skip steps...

micro, over at nfggames was at one point making custom PCBs that fix the problem entirely. I was lucky enough to get in early and order 4 from him (they're en route as I type this).
Alas, he's out and may not even make a second batch - http://nfggames.com/forum2/index.php?topic=5023.0

However, he offers his code for anyone who wants to flash their own chips:

I certainly have not come across a better solution than this.

As a side note, the same company that sells the replacement joysticks makes the BEST Nintendo gamebits I've ever seen. These are the last ones I will ever need to purchase, as all the other ones I've ever used have just stripped to hell.
