Need help getting a stick

Hi I’m modding my SE fightstick and I was hoping you could help out by recommending the best stick, both Octo and Square gate. I’d also like to know which is better (octo or square gate)
I have little fightstick experience and I want to switch from pad.

I don’t think there is a best stick, but it’s more preference. I think most people use this though. http://www.focusattack.com/products/Sanwa-JLF%2dTP%2d8YT%2dSK-Joystick.html
As for the gate, I’m positive it’s a preference thing and there isn’t a better one.

and this could be of use as well http://slagcoin.com/joystick/attributes_brands.html

good luck, be persistent.

Though if you prefer Octo gate, people have mentioned here that they really liked ls-56 with the octo gate.

Thanks a lot guys

read the stickies. everything you could possibly want to know is in them.
