Yeah, Amazon.ca sucks for these kinds of stuff! Before I bought my SE Stick locally, I was about to buy the HRAP3 but apparently anything but Blu-Ray movies cannot be shipped due to warranty not being valid anywhere except for the US.

SE Stick > FS3
They’re both technically the same stick but I studied up on Hori’s FS3 mods and everyone will eventually mod their sticks. The SE Stick has quick disconnects making modding easy and fits the standard Sanwa stick without any metal grinding(to fit the sticks) and no electrical tape required(short circuiting because of the low clearance and the base being metal).
Form factors are the same too except the SE stick angles down under the buttons whereas the FS3 is round.

ordered one too yesterday, really good deal! gonna be used for guests :slight_smile:


#12

where’d you get the SE locally? although i have very little soldering experience, how hard can it be to mod a FS3, isn’t it just about the same as the HRAP? if so,

It’s not hard, but it’s not just soldering. When you put in a JLF, there’s not enough clearance to the bottom plate, so you’ve got to place small dent in the case.
Read here, there’s enough info there to cover any questions you have about modding the stick.
