I’ve been questioning myself If theres a particular stick variety/setup that favors Makoto’s playstyle.
Ever since I started to play SF4AE (as a Makoto-loyalist), I’ve only used a standart Samwa JLF square-gate stick … and since my local scene is next to zero I never had a chance to test different types/modded sticks.
So this brings me to my question! What kind of modifications or tweaks you guys found helpful?
For instance, Is it better to have a circular gate restrictor instead of a square gate? will it fasten the execution on HC’s, IA Tsurugis, DP’s and so on? will it hurt more than it helps?
In terms of brands, Does a stick like the Seimitsu LS-40 (more stiff and with less throw) helps Makoto dash game and overhaul movement?
And what about new technologies such as the Hori Hayabusa V-Cut mechanism? is it worth the investment?
I would love to get an idea of what you people work with and If it’s crucial or not to worry about this things.
