HRAP vs HFS2 vs HFS3

This is a really difficult question to answer, so I’m hoping someone will be able to help me.

Is the joystick component from the Hori Fighting Stick 2 and Hori Fighting Stick 3 the same? I bought a HFS2 and was extremely dissatisfied with the joystick component, since the neutral zone (distance of joystick movement required to register a directional response) was so large. Is this the same for the Hori Fighting Stick 3?

Oh, and also, how does the joystick component compare to the HRAP?

I know the FS2 uses a hori stick, so does the FS3, I assume they’d be the same then. Can’t you replace the FS2 stick with a sanwa and it’d more responsive?

Is the Hori stick worse than the Sanwa stick which is on the HRAP?

it’s lower quality, yes

Are the buttons on the HFS2 snap-in like the HRAP?

I could be wrong but I believe the panel has ridges in the button holes like the Tekken 5 stick… Don’t quote me on that though. As for the better stick, the HRAP is the most managable by far…
