It sends the same digital events as a digital stick, but it doesn't behave exactly the same as a digital stick. Physically it will have a different feel than a digital stick which is what I am asking about.

You can purchase stiffer springs for some analog sticks, like the U360. Just wondering if that improves the feel, making it feel more like a digital stick and less floatly like an analog stick.

Then it will feel even less like a 4 way stick, but how much different and whether or not the feel is much compromised is the subject of my questions.

It's a relevant idea if part of the feel of digital sticks is the closing of the switch connection at the point of maximum throw.
