Very nice but a bit pricey for my taste...only a bit less than my X52 pro.

 

Which is happily bolted to the desk for about $4.00;)

Rediculously overpriced! You can make something very similar, and just as sturdy out of your DIY aluminium for less than half that.

I did see that review on simhq, and would have picked up a pair if they weren't that expensive. So, in consequence: decided to make my own, with these as inspiration.

I like the idea defo but agree on the price, its only a clamp.

 

But a niche market makes it exploitable and there are those that cant / dont have time (or money is no problem) to make these.

 

At least there are people focusing on sims.

 

Maybe between flight, 1st person and driving sims there is enough a market to put competative tension in there for consumers.

 

Im for it but not gonna buy it...

It should not be too hard making something like this: start out with a couple of sheets of thick (or thick-ish) aluminium and a couple of alu shelf holder. Give it a few think-overs, design sketches, several pop-rivits (spelling fail?), few hours of bending, building and swearing obviously :D

DO WANT! A little bit pricey even here in the UK but this would definitely save me a lot of trouble. My only concern is that it mounts things a bit too low. I'm seriously considering getting a pair since I have such a high desk and it saves me having to completely design a simpit/replacement desk.

I got a pair of these recently. I'll agree that the price seemed a little high for what was essentially a clamp but it looked like what I was looking for.

 

They're very light weight but much stronger than I thought they were going to be. Definitely good quality.

The clamp itself has no give at all. It has a couple of support struts beneath it and no flexing whatsoever. I've found the entire table shakes when I'm pulling evasive maneuvers, but that's down to the fact I'm on a long table. I was going to put a 16kg weight on for the pic but my table started to creak.

 

One word of warning though - don't put these on a flimsy tabletop. The manual says not to clamp it to a glass table (duh), but I'd be nervous of clamping one of these to the wife's dining room table.
