I have recently moved from the Mad Catz pad to the Hori EX2.
I wanted to get a stick for all the wonders that 6 buttons on the face provide. I am not too dissapointed with that, but the stick seems… off. On the pad I can knock out hard trial combos and what not, but with this thing I find it difficult to throw a metsu without jumping.
I have heard that the Mad Catz TE stick is much more responsive.
Basically is it the stick or is it me?
