I’ve been playing fighters since the start of this year. I’ve been mostly playing them on PC, and I got myself a Hori Fighting Stick 3 to play them with. It works well.
Recently, however, I have begun to avail myself of the PS2’s ample selection of fighters, and I find that I am without a good stick. I can handle a pad for a while, but I need a recommendation for a good stick.
The biggest problem for me at present is price. I’m a full-time student, and have very little in the way of funds right now. A stick in the $50-$60 price range would be the upper limit.
I am willing to sacrifice quality to a point. I don’t need Sanwa parts, but I’d prefer to have convex arcade-style buttons. Weight is important too–I found out the hard way that that is a crucial aspect for a stick.
So far I have found a Mayflash stick that also works on PS3 and PC, which is an extra bonus for me. I’ve also found a rather suspect stick made by a company called Honcam. I have doubts about its quality.
Does anyone have any recommendations for sticks or sites?
