Thanks guys for turning me into a joystick freak.
I brought home my first stick yesterday (a Hori SFIV stick) and I’ve been very pleased with it. Made my decision to buy this particular stick after lurking around…and yes I’m aware the buttons are soldered to the PCB. :lol:
Next up: Desoldering and modding buttons with Sanwas (I’ve already got them on hand). DUN DUN DUN
My question is, how long do the stock parts last? I know the stick came with a Sanwa JLF and stock Hori snap-ins, and I’m considering to change the buttons when I eventually wear them out, or change the stick and the buttons together.
So essentially I just need to know:
- How long does the Sanwa JLF usually last?
- How long do Hori snap -ins last?
- Stick will last longer than stock buttons or vice versa?
