    Would a Wireless controller be an option, plenty of Third party controllers for sale at a fraction of the price of Joy cons.
    Currys have the Official Pro Splatoon controller cheaper than Joy cons. I have both and I much prefer the Pro controller.
    Hope it helps.

    Its so frustrating chasing around for what are probably the worst controllers I've ever had for reliability

    It's all the stick drift and people having to get replacements. Pro controller by far the best imo

    Are they not just as vulnerable to drifting? Exact same joysticks etc?

    I'm about to start the same joycon hunt, my daughter is looking for her third set since she had it. The worst thing is that I've also replaced the thumb sticks individually, and they just go the same way.

    Mid last year a manufacturer came up with a protoype of hall effect sticks that are direct replacements, but I haven't seen any update on it. If they manage to put them into production they will be the hottest property since the Switch itself came out.
