Which deal do you guys think is better?
The HORI MvC3 Stick for $109.99 or the Madcatz SFIV Round 2 TE FightStick for $149.99?

OKay, I'm wondering if the Top Level Players that are sponsored in whatever fighting game, get free arcade sticks?
2.)Are those sticks modded/customized to the player's specifications or are they forced to use stock parts?
I'm curious if they get free sticks like skateboarders get free decks, shoes, etc.
I've been watching way too much? footage of tournament grand finals and lesser rounds, checking out the players' arcade sticks/set-ups and obviously their gameplay.
Are the MadCatz sticks better than Hori? I've never thought so, however after seeing so many players using them, I'm beginning to wonder...

Is it normal the start on a stick and just want to go back to my sfxt fightpad??? I do like the stick but after playing with it for over a week my execution is still really suffering (I am aware that it takes time!!) Do u get good players who just cannot adjust even with time???

It's normal, because it's a difficult transition. NOBODY becomes godlike on a stick in that short a period of time. It took me a few weeks to just START to become comfortable on a stick, and that's not including having to re-learn to do difficult combos involving rapid left-hand inputs. There will be a period where you will just suck because you can't execute, but if you continue with it, you'll transition just fine. It's like learning to play a completely different instrument. It will take awhile for your muscle memory to re-learn your inputs.
I believe that everybody can adjust with time, but some choose not to. Some players stick with the pad, and have placed well in tournaments (i.e. Fanatiq, Snake Eyes, etc). It's entirely up to you.

Thank you for the reply,
I started by picking up the sfxt fightpad as a stop gap and i noticed a very quick improvement playing with this (I was a sf2 genesis player). I have lost multiple matches online when I have dropped moves but after spending 125 on the sfxt pro stick I don't really want to run back to the pad (It is tempting though when I lose to bs stuff on the stick when I drop a move)

what are the easiest characters to play with on xbox 360 controller for sfxt and s4Ae? (dont like ps3's dpad)

To be honest, it's all up to preference on which character you like. Just learn how to play them efficiently on the controller of your choice, and you should be fine.
For starters, just try out motion characters, like Ryu, and see if you are comfortable playing motion characters. If not, try charge characters, like Guile, and see if you feel more comfortable playing charge characters on the 360 Pad.
Sorry if this answer is vague, but the question is vague within itself and susceptible to a lot of open-ended answers.

Like previously mentioned in the other post, most arcades used circle gates with bat tops.
Best octagonal sticks are the standard stuff you'd get from Sanwa or Seimitsu, both are high quality manufacturers, and the only difference between them is preference.

So you'd have to mod a stick to get an Octagonal gate?
Are there sticks that have octagonals as stock, that are comparable to MCZ and Hori?

The new standard is the Sanwa JLF square gate (I'm not sure why this is the standard, it's not that great of a stick).

OKay, need some opinions based on experience.
I have a UMvC3 HORI stick and it's good. I just dislike where the start button is placed.
I am considering the MCZ SFxT VS Edition stick. I like the fact you can connect to another same model.
But then there is the HoRI SC V V 5 stick which has a cover for the start button similar to the eject button on the Steel Battalion controller(I still have mine).
Damn, Arcade sticks are just so sexy, I'm looking at them and thinking the Pokemon motto (Gotta Get 'Em All). =>]

not sure if an odd question but I just got my first joystick. I decided on a Hrap v3-sa but after reading this thread about the new hori edge having a longer lifetime i got a bit worried. how long exactly does a pcb last before it needs replacing? and is it usually cheaper to replace the part or the whole thing? I got my stick for $130 cdn before taxes and shipping. Do ta's or qanba q4s ast longer? Thanks!

Here's an odd question, or it may be a common question. Either way, I'm going to ask it.
I recently got an arcade stick, and I'm having difficulty with my fireball and dragon punch movements from the left-hand (P1) side. When I'm on the right-hand (P2) side, I have little to no difficulty whatsoever pulling off the moves, and even the special/ultras in SSFIV AE. But as a Cammy player, that's a big part of my arsenal, if I'm stuck on the P1 side. I have tried the Square, Octagon, and Circular gate on my stick, and have found the circular to be the most comfortable. Is it simply a matter of practice practice practice, or is there something I'm doing wrong?
I realize this would probably be easier if there was some replay data, but I'm afraid I am incapable of providing such. Any tips of the trade?

It's a common problem. Most people have a preferred side for execution. I also execute better on P2 than P1. It probably has to do with the fact that you can use more thumb control for P2 movements, but more finger movements are required for P1.
No secret to it other than practice, practice, practice.

You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.-Mike_Z
