    I have used both Monarch and MPD hand controls for many years. Both are right angle controls. I had the MPDs on a Chrysler LeBaron and two Honda Civics for 17 years and three different sets of Monarch Mark 1-As on various vehicles including 2006 Tundra, 1996 Caravan, 2007 Honda Civic, 2013 Kia Soul, and 2014 Corolla.

    The amount of force used to push the accelerator is about the same for both units. That's considering the length of the lever is set for both at approximately the same length. There's more than one position on the Monarch units and they also have different handle types, depending on the vehicle. To me though, the Monarch's operate more smoothly and seem to be more efficient at applying both accelerator and braking force. Plus the MPD controls used to creak annoyingly on my Civics. Also, my MPD unit has a hard plastic (or bakelite) knob type handle (they can get very hot in the sun). The Monarch controls have a foam grip similar to some motorcycle grips. I prefer the Monarch controls.
