Hori VX - SA vs Madcatz TE r2/mvc3/etc

I want a stick that’s on a tournament level. I heard the SA stands for Sanwa for the Hori VX SA. I know Sanwa is quite the top of the line parts for japanese style arcade sticks. Is the VX - SA on the same level as a TE (everything r2 and up)? Or is it better or worst?

Thank You,
Justin

it is the same level price and quality wise, te has slightly heavier case than hori.
