I have a joystick question for the joystick experts in this forum


#1

Hi there,

I was wondering if the joystick experts would like to make a comment on these two arcade joysticks :-

  1. Suzo Series 500 Universal STC Joystick
    http://www.lizardlickamusements.com/pages/joysticks.shtml

  2. The standard Sanwa Arcade Joystick like those found in the Matcatz Tornament Edition Sticks

For fighter type games - eg street fighter - which of these joysticks would you prefer and why ?

In down under land all the arcade cabinets use the suzo series 500 style joysticks … that was about 15 to 20 years ago … i am not sure about now …

In asia particularly singapore - most of the arcades uses the Sanwa standard joysticks …

Since these 2 joystick are very different from one another - perhaps would someone like to make a comment on which ones is better for fighter type games ?

:wonder:

:confused:

Thanks

Preference, that’s all it is. Try one, you like it? Keep using it.

I have a question, do the happ stick make that clicking sound when you rotate it like sanwa sticks? I hate that clicking noise. . .

May I please ask where abouts are you from ?

:razz:

It really just comes down to what you play best on. There is no “Best” stick imo. Sure, some may be technically built better but whatever. I love my TE stick. Solid as a rock.

I’m moving this over to the Saikyo boards because it’s more of a general question than a SF4 issue. If you have a specific hardware question about these sticks, check out our tech talk boards. They know their shit.

Japanese style balltops with square gates for life! Off course, growing up where I did, I’ve only played on them (JLFs and LS-32s) for over 15 years now.

thanks

Are there any differences technically between the Madcatz Revision 1 and Revision 2 tornament edition sticks ???


#11

If you’re referring to a TE and a Round 2 TE, not that I’ve noticed. They both play the same for me.

"Of course, first impressions aren?t everything, so I went ahead and cracked open my original, launch day Tournament Edition while a friend brought his exclusive San Diego ComicCon TE over for inspection, and compared the two sticks to the Round 2. Unsurprisingly, there were no differences to the naked eye. "

I think Suzos are popular with tekken players in like Europe or something. I believe the 1p wavedashing is pretty good due to its short throw.


#13

does this mean that there is also no differences between the R1 and R2 sticks as compared to the Super Street Fighter 4 Tornament Edition Sticks ???

all 3 looks exactly the same out side … wondering if the insides are the same too ???


#14

I don’t think they would change the stick intenerally if they haven’t done it thus far. It works and it’s a good stick, they would be dumb to alter it now.

The TE S has improved and new featured PCB.
