    Is it stable when it's clamped to a ledge?
    i recently got a q1 cut... i'd say its pretty stable, but i wouldn't lean my whole body weight on it. But yeah, it will not move around while playing. the clamps themselves are nice too and from what i've been using, doesn't leave any markings on the table. the clamps give a nice angle on its own too :)

    the proprietary Qanba lever is very nice too, smooth and snappy, very competent, comparable to JLF and LS-58. only flaw i can say is how cheaper the shaft cover , balltop, and dustwasher feel, but those can been easily replaced (its a JLF clone, so parts fit). The gates provided are nice too, i dont use octo or circle gates, but having the option is nice. As for the buttons, they were instantly replaced, I wasn't expecting much, but they felt a bit cheap and chunky, nice gloss and flat shape though.

    Choopy how did you paint it?


    I used Krylon fusion in a darker green (the only color green I could find) and then did a few coats of green Velspar spray paint on top. I put a matte clear over it too to protect it, although I'm not sure how durable it'll be over time or anything.

    Sick! I'm glad to see another one, don't see too many Blanka sticks. Awesome you used the blue Blanka, haha. He's such a colorful guy..

    Not too too well.

    It'll probably wear off through time.

    I recommend you sand your plastic before your coat it with any kind of paint.

    I actually did sand it, though I do expect it to wear over time. That's ok though, I'll probably build a shell for it in the future. Mostly I just got the brawlstick since it's my first fight stick and it was on sale for $30, hard to go wrong I guess.

    Troyism did mine. I bought it from him, though I rewired it and did some other things. He did the art.

    Hi everyone, this seems like the right place for my first post (haven't found an introduction thread yet).
    I've got to take better pics of my stick collection, but for starters here is my most used panel.

    That's hot. I was going to do something similar to that, with the WW character select screen though... My button colors were going to be in relationship to the characters, but I figured out it would end up costing too much for the different buttons...

    e.g. red button casing with white plunger for Ryu... Yellow with red plunger for Ken... Yellow with Green for Guile, etc.

    That's a hot idea! Should do it with translucent buttons and the characters in the buttons! :p

    That was actually the base for my original concept! I was having a tough time coming up with art that would support it though. I was thinking about proceeding with the buttons that way, but felt the stick would look too busy.

    That sounds hot actually..

    My scheme was this...

    Ryu = White w/ red border
    Ken = Red w/ yellow border
    Guile = Green w/ yellow border
    Blanka = Green w/ orange border
    Chun = Blue w/ yellow border (or white)
    Dhalsim =Orange w/ red border
    Honda = Blue (towel) w/ red (facepaint) border
    Gief = FUCKING HARD to figure this one out... but I came up with Yellow w/ red border from his boots and arm band colors, and I didn't want it to be the same as Ken.

    So add the translucent ones to that and put their portraits... fuck yeah.

    I had the same thing except used red plunger with yellow rim for 'Gief and yellow plunger with red rim for Ken. I think the red plunger with yellow rim fits 'Gief better and can justify the yellow plunger with red rim for Ken very easily.

    I prefer the clean look myself, but I wonder why you're using button plugs, rather than not have the holes cut at all?

    I ordered the plexis a really long time ago, before I had an idea of what hraps they were going in. Thankfully I had these colorful qanba buttons plugs laying around.
