Seeking silicone replacement advice

Recommended Posts

Looking to refurbish an NES gamepad found in the wild recently, the silicone pads are worn out (some are torn).  I need to replace them, seeking recommendations on quality reproductions that have good tactile feel and quality construction.  Some candidates:




trusted ebay or Amazon marketeers


If you have a recommendation on a favorite source for these components, I'd like to know

I'd go with console5 if thats your option.  They'll at least try and be a bit better about having shoddy parts since they have a strong reputation for parts, repair parts, upgrades, mods, etc.

Thanks for the input, I'm going with Console5 for their kit.  Will order one of their DB9 extension cables too.  I'll post my impressions after I've had some time to evaluate, maybe it will help others make an informed choice in the future.
