After debating, and a couple almosts, I'm finally ready to purchase an arcade stick.
But if im going to spend 100-150 for a controller, I want to make sure I know my options as well as possible! That's where you, my fellow fighting game enthusiast, come in!
So my question is, of these 3, "high end" pre assmbled sticks, which is the best?
Of course that is a matter of opinion. What I am asking about is build quality and personal preference.
Please let me know if there is any reason to prefer one over the other!
From what I understand the greatest difference between the Hori and the Mad Catz stick is the weight of the device. Can anyone comment on this? Some people seem to find the relative light weight of the Hori stick off putting.
I have also read things about screws coming loose at times on the mad catz TE sticks and the ball top (possibly the entire joystick? I was a bit confused) coming unscrewed on the HRAP V3 SA
I have not found a great deal of info on the qanba. From what I have read it is a solid stick, and appears to be the heaviest of the 3. It is lacking turbo (lol turbo), which the other sticks have, but i have no use for the feature.
What I do know for sure is they all carry sanwa parts, and follow the same button layout (with minor differences involving start buttons and other small things). This leads me to believe any of the 3 would be a worthwhile purchase. I would like some opinions to help me make my decision. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
