I explained my frustration to the lack of support for the new shoe in my rant link. I can't buy replacements to my old system for the new shoe. There is only the F60.

The A900 wheels and joystick have a noticeably stiffer action which prevents accidental change. Whats the point of putting a lock button on the mode wheel to prevent accidental change and then going in the opposite direction with the front and back wheels and joystick?

I agree, the wheels are too slick and the back one on mine at least is not sure at all, I can somtimes turn it a notch without it changing the setting. Feels very imprecise

You're right about the wheels. A couple of times, I'd brushed my fingers on the top wheel and it moved the adjustments. I had to go back and set them back the way that I'd had them.
