Help ID'ing U.S Stick


#1

This photo is from the inside of the TANK stick. It uses Cherry Micro switches. Yet, it does not look exactly like the recent Happ comp stick I have.

Maybe it is just an older version of the Happ comp? Since the TANK was around since the SNES days.

Thanks. :lovin:

The x-arcade stick uses their own brand of parts, a Happ knock-off. It may have cherries in there but the stick is still x-arcade brand.


#3

This is not an X-Arcade stick. It’s a HES TANK Stick. Comparing it to the inside of a X-Arcade the stick does not match at all.


#4

All I know is that x-arcade makes a stick called the Tank tick so I was going off of that.

Ok. :slight_smile: Here is a pic of the HES Tank.

That’s a neat looking case. What is that small button above the stick and below that big red button?

As for the stick in the first post. I have bought new Happ stick and a new iL stick in the past couple months and neither have looked like that one. And I can’t think of any of the Happs I’ve bought in the last 4-5 years looking like that.

The small red button acts as the guide button. :smiley:


#8

This might just be me, but that layout is sort of awkward just to look at lol.


#9

Looks kind of awkward to use. The buttons are near the edge while the joystick is below the second row of buttons lol.


#10

It’s not that awkward to use at all. Since the higher placed button give your wrist good wresting space. Very comfortable.


#11

I prefer lots o wrist space also!


#12

it looks like an older happ ultimate or a wico microswitch stick.

Thanks for the input EvilSamurai. :smiley:

Indeed! I find in most other sticks my wrists rest on the edge of the stick which is no good for long play sessions, since I think blood flow is restricted to the fingers.
