My super-duper-modded Exar Exaprize.<br><br>Front: custom stainless steel panel (cut by local metal-working company,
CAD drawings done by my cousin who works normally with the software)
and self-cut matching 1/16" plexi.<br>Laugh all you want at the
Straight-6 layout; I play better with that layout due to the way I often
press Roundhouse with the base of my pinky finger (the Roundhouse
button is too far to the left on any ergonomic curved layout).<br>The 1/16" plexi in addition to modifying the JLF mount makes the stick shaft at exactly 24mm for proper mounting height.<br><img src=“http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e18/tidalwav/joysticks/Exaprize/exar_front.jpg”><br><br>Inside: Brawlstick 360 PCB with ChImp SMD on a custom mounting panel cut from 1/16" plexi.  Header pins soldered to secondary PCB for easy disconnection.  As close to super-wiring as I’ll probably ever get.<br><img src=“http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e18/tidalwav/joysticks/Exaprize/exar_innards2.jpg”><br>Underside of PCBs: http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e18/tidalwav/joysticks/Exaprize/exar_pcb2.jpg<br><br>Top: micro-USB jack for detachable cables.<br><img src=“http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e18/tidalwav/joysticks/Exaprize/exar_top-1.jpg”><br><br>This is probably more work than anyone is willing to put into an Exaprize; so I think I very likely have the most modded Exaprize in the world.  :D<br><br>Parts list:<br>- Exar Exaprize USB Sanwa edition<br>- custom stainless steel panel (1/16" thick)<br>- matching 1/16" plexi<br>- 6x Seimitsu PS-14-K 30mm Smoke buttons<br>- Brawlstick X360 PCB<br>- ChImp SMD<br>- JLF<br>- black-coated Link shaft<br>- Sanwa black bat-top<br>- Paradise-Arcade GT-Y octogonal gate insert<br>- Mad Catz arrow dustwasher<br>- micro-USB jack<br>

Re-wired this for my brother; he did it originally, and while it was working, it was a rat’s nest inside (forgot to take pics before I took it all apart).<br><br>Front: Tek-Innovations case with FF-XIII art.<br><img src=“http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e18/tidalwav/joysticks/Commissions/Tek-case_front.jpg”><br><br>Inside: Mad Catz 4716 with MC Cthulhu and ImpV2.  Custom PCB mount for the MCC+ImpV2 cut from ABS plastic; the stock mounts for Tek-cases don’t fit too well with those PCBs.<br><img src=“http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e18/tidalwav/joysticks/Commissions/Tek-case_innards2.jpg”><br><br>Parts list:<br>- Tek-Innovations Tek-case with custom layout<br>- Mad Catz 4716<br>- MC Cthulhu<br>- ImpV2<br>- 8x Sanwa OBSF-30 White<br>- 3x Sanwa OBSF-24 White<br>- JLF<br>- Sanwa white bat-top<br>- Qanba white shaft cover<br>- Tek-Innovations white arrowed dustwasher<br>- Neutrik NAUSB silver<br>

That FFXIII stick is MAD clean, brother. I love it. Normally I love flashier/stylish artwork, but in this particular instance I love the clean look to it, even my dad who’s looking over my shoulder just now while playing FFXIII-2 commented that he really liked the clean look of it. :smiley:

<br>How expensive? Where did you find the price of it at that you’re mentioning?<br>I got mines at a local swap meet for less than $10, brand new. It’s a 18x12 self-healing one. <br>


#26375

Thanks for the kind words on the FFXIII stick; my brother really wanted it to be a classy kind of clean, so that’s what we came up with together.<br>The original layout was actually reversed; with Lightning on the right and the FFXIII logo on the lower left.  That was when my brother was using it on a custom case that I built him.<br>But when he switched to a Tek-case, there wasn’t enough room on the right side of the buttons for Lighting, so I switched it around.  In the end, I think it looks better this way since the slew of white face buttons blends better with the white background on that side.<br><br><blockquote class=“Quote”>

I have a couple of small ones that I’ve found at random dollarstores (about 7"x10", found in a Dollarama here in Montreal; and 9"x12" found in a Daiso in San Francisco).  The large blue ones that you see are actually two 20"x20" put side-by-side; found them on liquidation at a local arts & crafts chain store here in Montreal (Omer DeSerres) for about $8 each.<br><br>Hmmm…  editing a post removes the “Likes” on it?  That kinda sucks…<br>

<font face=“Arial, Verdana” size=“2”><span style=“line-height: normal;”>Hey everyone, been a while since we last posted some work. Here is the latest from the Foe Hammer Shop. This is our first fully branded Foe Hammer. We’re calling it the FH-Stealth. It’s equipped with a Sanwa JLF joystick and black mesh ball top. Top panel is a standard Vewlix layout with 30mm Sanwa OBSCS silent push button’s. Same goes for the home, select, start/menu button’s on the right side of the case, all Sanwa OBSCS. Low profile stance with the 40mm Aluminum black non-slip feet. Custom etched underside top panel to look like carbon fiber and custom wire up by Shep-dizzle. The underside is visable through a clear plexi with painted border trim.
