What's the consensus on Leaf Switches?

What does everyone think of these types of joysticks as compared to microswitches. In case anyone is unsure of how a leaf switch joystick is setup, you can find a good example here.

  • Please note I am not asking about any specific branding, but rather just the method of implementation microswitch vs leaf switch.

Fun, but they feel cheap compared to microswitches. It’s really your choice though.

They get worn out fast.

No other opinions between the two pieces of hardware?
Anyone have any extended real world experience with the two?
If the Leafs are prone to wear and tear are they easily repaired?
