So I just wished to start a discussion on how much is too much for a fightstick and, moreover, why are certain brands/models so expensive to buy off the shelf? I only ask as I am intrigued in that I have a modded F500 with a Sanwa JLF a 4lb spring a kowal actuator and 8 Sanwa OBSF 30 buttons and the whole lot was WAY less than £50 GBP but, I did once have the Capcom Street Fighter X Tekken stick that you could lock together with a 2nd and stupidly sold it and that was almost £200?! And the components were pretty much identical?!
Does anyone think that they are overpriced regardless of quality and as I have mentioned already, how much would people be willing to pay for an off the shelf branded stick? And what is the most that anyone HAS paid be it for the exclusivity, the look, the desoign etc?
I am VERY new to all this and would LOVE a collection as I have seen some people post pictures of but, I also realise that I would not be a good enough player to warrant a collection of my own!!
Be interesting to get people’s thought’s/ opinion’s please!!
