Yeah, Smash stick is ideal for Olimar. Won't be using tilts enough to justify having it the other way except for maybe dtilt which you don't need it to use consistently. You'll be able to train yourself for ftilt and utilt with some practice.

I agree with using Smash Stick over Tilt Stick. In fact, Olimar is literally the only character that I use it for.
To build onto what Myran said, you're going to be using Smash attacks way more frequently and during more technical inputs, in my opinion. Especially in a situation where you are punishing off a reaction.
I personally dont use forward tilt that often and only heavily use Up and Down tilts. They're simply the better moves, comparably.
From a technical standpoint, D-tilt is very easy to perform, even while running, by just holding down with any sensitivity. U-tilt, without Tap Jump on, is also easy with very little dependence on stick sensitivity.

So overall, its definitely a pretty strong consensus that smash stick for Olimar is the way to go. I'd like to hear someone's opinion as to why they use tilt stick, though.
