Well, a few years back I got hold of a pair of these wireless Atari joysticks along with the base which connects to the Atari 2600.

I did not feel a lag when playing but that might have been down to the games I tried them with.

Or, hope dies last, maybe the technology moved on a bit and I have an improved model?

Anyway, these huge joystick bases and antennas are a sight to behold. The Atari 2600's wireless controllers are a great piece of retro computing that any collector should have IMHO.

I am glad you had a better experience. I have often wondered if my experience was because of user error related to being an impatient kid. Maybe its time to give them another try.
