Do I have to take the red decal/sticker on the top to mod it? Or can I just unscrew the bottom like a SE/Brawl stick?


#2

Unscrew from the bottom to access everything.


#3

Saw this on amazon for 99 bucks so I’m thinking about getting it but I was wondering, is there anything bad about this stick compared to the pricier ones?


#4

You can get it from madcatz for $79.99 and free shipping if you use the coupon CEO2014 .

#5

Damnit, too bad I’ll be broke until after CEO is over. Do you know if the coupon codes will work a few days after the event is over?


#6

I tried the last coupon code a few days after the Weekend event and it worked. But I’m not sure if that was a one time thing.
I bought a Pro during the sale a while back and really dig it. Thinking of getting a KE this go round.


#7

It’s the same as a TE stick. Only draw back is that it is slightly lighter, but the weight is great for me. (can mod to be heavier)


#8

The parts are the same, the feel is different–sloped front, lighter. Sides are not removable. It’s a lower tier product from the customizable perspective. As a tool though, everything inside is the same.


#9

Ah. I like the sloped front a lot, compared to my non-sloped Brawl stick. The slope helps those who suffer from carpal tunnel.


#10

Wait, but doesn’t the Brawlstick/SE have a sloped front as well?


#11

Yeah, I haven’t used mine awhile so I forgot. It is significantly less angled, and since its a small stick base in general I don’t find my wrists resting on it that often.
