Hey guys. Long time casual SF player looking to get better after a renewed interest in SF4 and the super and arcade addons.
I bought this the other day -http://xbox.about.com/od/xboxaccessories/fr/horiex2stickrev.htm
The reviews seemed good and I’m getting on okay with it.
And then after some searching I saw that you can easily and cheaply buy arcade quality components in the name of Sanwa joysticks.
These are considered to be the best, right? And am I right in thinking that this is it? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SANWA-JOYSTICK-JLW-UM-8-BLACK-BAT-TOP-HANDLE-JLWUM8-/390132659302?pt=UK_Video_Games_Coin_Operated_MJ&hash=item5ad5b7f466#ht_1709wt_1396
I have a couple of further questions.
Will the eBay item fit my Hori EX2 fightstick?
What is generally considered the better shape? The ball or the bat top handle type?
Is it easy to install? I read that it’s a ‘pop out and pop in’ job, but some other guide involved soldering, and that’s above my station (mainly as I have no soldering iron).
Is it really needed to get the buttons as the buttons seem fine on mine. They don’t stick and are responsive.
Thanks guys, any knowledge or information passed on is greatly appreciated.
