Question 1. so I’ve always thought that the ball on top of the joystick is supposed to be screwed on tightly so that it doesn’t rotate when you are using it.
but the other day i finally got the chance to try out a tournament edition stick and an SE stick. Both of the ball tops rotated when i twisted the top with my fingers. I don’t know whether the ball tops were just loose, or if they’re supposed to be this way, because i have almost no experience with arcade sticks.
so i thought you guys would have a better idea than me.
Question 2. I live in Canada, and I figure it’s cheaper to buy a TE stick from amazon.com and pay for shipping, than to buy it from anywhere in Canada. I’m just worried if things might get damaged because it’s considered “international shipping”, anyone with real experience I would appreciate your input!
