Yeah, I have seen that company’s ad on ebay as well. I am not sure though if they are authentic MAS sticks though, the stock picture they use is of a MAS super pro stick, but the company’s name or should I say ebay user name is galaxy3000 and not massystems, and they say that they use new cases and components. AFAIK the only people mas systems makes new sticks for is arcade shock or though mas themselves. I could be wrong though. I would be interested to find out.
I emailed the guy on Ebay asking for a real picture and this is what he said.
They look identical, this is our product factory picture, since they are made to order they go out right away. Thank you again for your interest.

Can you send me an actual picture of the item. Not a picture off the internet?
Thanks for e-mailing the company. That is interesting, they say that their product looks indentical and that the picture they show is of the product that they are producing. Is this another ebay account for mas or is this company making mas knockoff’s with mas branding. (if this is the case I wonder if mas systems knows about it.) Well anyway thanks for getting a response from the guy and good luck with finding your plexi.
I believe they are not from america as ebay says if I were to purchase it today it would be here June 7 - June 20th which is more inline with shipping from Hong Kong or something. And I am pretty sure that picture is taken from massystems website from 2005.
Have a look at the way back machine and scroll down about half way. You will see the picture I am talking about (I’ll link it just incase)
JK Thanks. I know but I was hopeing someone just had a shop I could buy one. Me tinks I will end up having to take your route though. I have seen people with MAS sticks that looked to have plexi on them. I will wait and see if MAS has something for me.
