MadCatz Fightpad or Hori EX2 stick for 360?

Tomorrow I will a chance to purchase either one, but after reading a few sites and around here, I’m getting completely different results.

So my question is, between these two controllers for a guy who hasn’t been seriously into street fighter since Street Fighter 2 Turbo, which controller is better for the long run? I want something responsive, reliable, and can handle both charge/quarter circle characters. I tried using the analog for the 360 but Ultras were hard to pull off and I couldn’t even dash properly.
