i like my current setup of
hayabusa + octogate (focus attack) + 3lb sanwa spring (paradise arcade shop) + 0.5mm oversized actuator (paradise arcade shop)
i feel it’s really responsive and the way i want it, except its not completely silent. i’m gonna try an omron switch mod on the hayabusa soon.
my suggestion to you is first try the joystick in stock, and see how well you perform the commands you feel are the hardest. once you can reliably perform them stock, and in long-term you observe that you miss the command because of x or y factor, then you can start modding from there. if and only if you should mod your joystick when what you feel is second nature is failing due to the joystick properties. nothing on a joystick instantly improves your execution – it’s really for the 0.005% where you want your joystick to be reliable.
