Summary: Bought arcade stick because my old one is not analog compatible. Needed a new stick and this was the one I went with. Not gonna lie. Bought it because it was on sale and didn't wanna pay over $100 for a new stick. And am fine with the "you get what you pay for" term.
Summary: I invested about $60 into this stick by modding it. I used sanwa parts except the dust washer. 30mm silent sanwa buttons. I went to fed ex and printed out the decal. The template for the picture is floating around on the internet and can easily be found.
Summary: I play this with ultimate marvel vs capcom 3. I replaced the square gate with an octagon gate, then went back to the square. Another reviewer mentioned that the diagonal directions didn't actuate correctly; that was not my experience.
Summary: This was my first stick for fighting games and I came away very pleased. Of course, the original parts aren't what interested me, but rather the really easy modding capability. I swapped out the stick and buttons for some Sanwas and it works without fail.
