USB Competition Pro joystick - Microswitch question

Hi

One of the microswitches has failed on my joystick but the switch doesn't have any print on it.

I have found some on eBay but there seems to be a 10amp, 15amp and 20amp...

Does anyone have any ideas which these joysticks would use?

10 amp will be fine, but realistically I don't think it'll make any difference for a joystick, there's very little in the way of circuitry or power in there for this rating to have any impact. In the past I just used whatever was to hand, though these were usually cannibalised from lesser sticks than the Comp Pro.

I had one go in mine a few years ago, trundled down to Maplins and got another one, only cost a few pence.
