Let me start off by saying that my SFIV SE does NOT suffer from the usual stick-sticking / washer problem. I’m one of the lucky ones to get a defect-less stick
The lower right side of my SFIV SE stick doesn’t seem to respond as well as the rest of the stick. I could pull off every move with ease but have a BIG problem pulling off anything that requires the lower right side of the stick especially if it is a double like Shinku Hadoken executing from left to right.
I’ve been thinking about replacing the stick and buttons with Sanwa parts, but not sure if it’ll fix the problem.
Some have suggested switching to an octagonal plating? But I don’t really know what it is and how it would solve the problem.
If anyone has an idea why the stick is behaving this way and if changing a stick would fix the problem, please let me know.
