I would love some of that compensation. Do you have a JLF stick?
Here is what I recommend.
"Sanwa JLF-TP-8T Ball Handle Joystick, 4 & 8-Way Adjustable
This is an awesome Japanese joystick, using high-quality construction and micro-switches, it is adjustable for 4 and 8 way operation. Ideally suited for metal or wood control panels. Non-standard mounting holes for panels with tight spaces, and also a perfect fit for Nintendo control panels. Incorporates Sanwa’s simple “screw-on” ball handle design, and a unique pcb-mounted switch design with wiring harness. No need to run a ground wire to all the switches! Includes installed mounting plate, wiring harness, shaft disk and ball top color of your choice from the Sanwa LB-35’s listed below.

I have put on in an Ex2 before.
Lizardlick is sold out, I know I need to buy one for my Wireless Ex2, I will just have to wait. You can possibly find it on another site.
