Here’s a long, boring story. I’ve always played on Happ sticks and wanted to see the world of Sanwa/Seimitsu to have a valid opinion on each. My tax return came and here’s what went down:
I bought an SE fight stick retail. I popped one of the buttons to see how the snap-ins worked and one of the snap-in nubs decided to commit suicide. GG Mad Catz. The button no longer holds firmly and swivels about in the case. I’m now convinced that snap-ins are the antichrist even if Mad Catz’s cheap buttons are just to blame.
As a result of the button breaking, I ordered a Seimitsu stick and screw-on buttons to replace it with. Gateway drug…
I also just picked up a HRAP 2 SA on eBay which was the stick I’ve wanted all along. I want to keep this as my main and add a 360 PCB to it.
This is probably a stupid question. If I end up liking the Seimitsu parts better can I move the Sanwa buttons/stick from the HRAP over to the SE stick? Are they snap-ins? Should I order some screw-ons or is that going overboard? I may end up selling the SE if I like the HRAP considerably better. It looks like a larger base which is what I would prefer. I also need the PS2 compatibility in a big way for PS2/Xbox/Dreamcast/Wii.
I know this is very rudimentary stuff. Thanks in advance for any advice.
