I understand my reply is too late to be of much use, but here it is anyway.
I’m a licensed pilot, and I owned 2 airplanes, one of which was a Piper PA-28-140, which had very similar characteristics to the PA-28-161.
The key point I want to make is that none of the light single-engine airplanes like those require very much force on the yoke, even for full travel. And even the largest of airplanes don’t either, because their control systems involve various hydraulic or other control assist designs.
IMO, that factor is a non-player in choosing any simulator yoke. As long as the yoke in question has a few lbs of available force, that’s plenty. One doesn’t have to be Hercules to pilot these airplanes, and the sim control system shouldn’t require it either. Let’s don’t get too carried away with amounts of “force” in the yoke.
