I have two sticks, HRAP3 modded with all Sanwa, and a FS3, with a JLF and all Sanwa.
Typically I use my FS3 on a desk for use with my PC, (PC ver of SF4 and anything MAME) and my HRAP3 for my PS3… Anyway this weekend i decided to add an additional mod to my FS3 and that was weight !! And lots of it… and I can tell you now, it’s the best mod I’ve done for it… It weights like a Battery Backup now… heavy as heck and it doesn’t budge at all when getting heavy handed with it in the heat of combat.
I managed to find a couple of leather pouches that are filled with lead metal granules… They are like small bean bags as such, used in the art industry to hold down opened up canvases… Anyway being a soft leather they easily squeezed into the tight restricted spaces of the innards of an FS3. I managed to get two of the suckers in there and the thing is so much better and has a much higher quality feel to it also… And they also act as sound dampers inside the stick which gives an overall smooth feel on the click of the JLF and Sanwa’s.
Anyway thought i’d share this info with all you others… Definitely has seemed to improve my games also… Will not be doing this on my HRAP3 cos for lap play it may be a little too heavy. But for desk play, you can’t beat it !
