Topic: Looking for good wireless N64 controllers

I'd ideally like to get a wireless controller, but a good wired with a rubber top on the stick would work too. I'd even be open to a rubber grip that fits the original stick, but the ones I have keep coming off during play (especially with Smash or Mario Kart). I'd like the controller to support at least the Controller Pak, although Rumble and Transfer would be a nice bonus. Also, I do have big hands, so something that's not made for small hands would be good.

I currently have 2 original controllers (one with original stick, other has Gamecube style), a 3rd party wired (TTX Tech) that looks like an original, and a wired Brawler 64. The original stick seems to be best for playing, while the Gamecube style seems to feel the best. The TTX controller seems to have gotten drift quickly and the stick isn't as accurate as the original, but feels better, but not as good as the GC style. The Brawler stick feels like it's sticking out too much and possibly too pointed and I don't like the Z triggers on it. They feel too squishy, and it's also confusing at times to have my left finger on Z and my right finger on R. I keep wanting to put my right finger on Z as well. If I could flip the 2, that problem would be better.

I'm going to try the Brawler again to see if I can get used to the stick. I'm still finding the triggers to be an issue though.

You have a couple of options now.
The tribute 64 pad
The brawler 64 wireless
I’m using the retro fighters wireless pad coming from the wired. It’s been great although nothing really beats the original. I wish they made a wireless one. Come on 8bitdo.

Saw some reviews for each, and I'm hearing that the Brawler seems to drop inputs with Mario Kart, but otherwise is good. It looks like the triggers are better than the wired version, so that's good. As for the Tribute, I didn't hear too many bad things either except for the sensitivity not being perfect as is the Brawler (still good though), that it's hard to switch between rumble and memory (at least it supports rumble), and it looks like it might be a bit small.

I think I'm leaning toward the Tribute at this point as long as the size isn't an issue. Anyone have experience with this?

@HeavyMetalWario64DS the tribute controller looks great. Close to the hori pads but size looked a little small for me but it’s a controller I want to try out but honestly the best controller for the nintendo 64 is the official nintendo 64 controller and I was hoping company’s would be making a wireless mod kits for it. Similar to how 8bitdo has made wireless mods for the nes/Snes Mega drive controllers.

What would people's opinions on Wireless Brawler or Tribute be?

Ended up getting a Tribute64, and it seems really good so far. A little small, but I like the stick better then the Brawler's so that makes up for it. Also can't play Goldeneye using the d-pad and stick, but that's only a minor issue. I can use the C buttons pretty well too.
