Looking for the name of a 3rd party N64 controller

I'm trying to remember the name of a 3rd party N64 controller a friend of mine that that was pretty awesome.

Instead of having the regular 3-pronged shape, it was lopsided so the dpad and joystick were on the left side and the right side was much skinnier with just the buttons on it. It was so much better than the original controller.

If anybody knows what I'm talking about or even has pictures, please, any help is appreciated. Thanks :)

    I just spent 15 minutes looking for the name of this, because it was bugging me. It appears that what you are looking for is called the makopad/makopad64 -- or the superpad/superpad 64. (Not sure if they come from the same manufacturer, or if it's two different companies. I think the makopad is the more popular/common one.)

    SharkPad by MadCatz. I had one a long time ago, and it was pretty awesome.

    edit: Shit, I'm wrong, it is the MakoPad, and they're both by InterAct. I also had both too.

    You should try finding the hori pad, it's even better; it has a gamecube analog stick, with a dpad under that on the left, buttons on the right and twin z buttons up top ala dual shock. Pretty rad.

    I loved one of those.

    I had another one though, doubt I'll find a picture of it, but it was called the boomerang. it was shaped exactly like you'd imagine. :p
