A dual stage trigger is great, if present, since it works hand in hand with aircraft that support such a configuration. However, with decent configuration software, a single stage trigger, along with another button controlling a shift state, can effectively duplicate what a dual stage trigger does. Perhaps, not as well, but adequately.

I will say that if all else were equal, I would prefer to purchase a stick with a dual stage trigger. It is far easier to ignore (not use) a feature than it is to try and replicate it with combinations of buttons.

I never used TM Warthog or some other joysticks with dual stage
Does it affect the aiming ?

Not at all. The movement from the first 'click' to the second requires minimal force from a single finger. This does not impact the position of the hand/wrist at all.

I think I have settled on 175mm for my extension.

Nice thing about the extension kit, it comes with three that can be interconnected - 50mm, 75mm, and 100 mm. Allows for good customizing for stick length.
