How big is the difference exactly? If you can take a picture of both side by side, that’d be nice.
I’m strongly starting to suspect that the reason why I’ve been struggling so long with learning stick is that the shaft is way too short for the way I hold it.
I hold it like this:
[If someone can tell me whether this hold is from the top or from the side, that would help too]
-except way more from the side, no fingers on the shaft, and I only use my middle finger for motions going left. Problem is the ball’s too low to get my index finger on properly unless I curl my wrist in and then I end up mashing the bottom of my hand against the base when I do left-going motions, plus my range of motion is restricted. If I put my thumb on top of the ball, it helps quite a bit, but then I can’t dash/parry left properly, and I can’t do moves as quickly because I’m using the ball like a d-pad.
I guess what I’m asking is whether the shaft height difference is big enough that you’d actually have to change the way you hold the stick.
