New Fight Stick

I would like to buy a new fight stick and my favourite has to be the Hori Real Arcade Pro VLX. I love the huge size and retro looks but having a hard time tracking one down hear in the UK. I have been using a friends Fighting Edge and I really like the Hayabusa stick but I keep catching the touch panel on the right. not a big fan of Sanwa sticks but would love to try a Seimitsu. I live near and can get some parts, but I need A stick first. Any other sticks to recommend I like big and retro and I only play on PC. Hori real arcade pro V4 is nice but can only see one on playasia and don not fancy ordering from Hong Kong any advice and suggestions would be welcome Thanks.
