Has anyone had any luck buying the thumbstick for this

tbh, the replacement is pretty straightforward if you've ever done anything like this. The problem is (like everybody above me said) it's hard to find the appropriate replacement thumbstick, as regular thumbsticks don't work! I've tried ps4, Xbox one, 360, original Xbox, switch pro... And to be clear, a lot of these will fit onto the metal rod, but once you close it up there isn't enough clearance for the joystick to move. Kishi's thumbstick is a unique profile that may as well be proprietary.

Regardless, if I find a solution, I will share it with ya'll :)
