I looked this thread up through yahoo, because I was wondering what the difference of the feel would be…
The reason is, that Seimitsu has a much better variety in colors of the translucent line compared to Sanwa. I’m getting a TE2 Rivals stick and was thinking I wanted to put LEDs in it and replace the orange and yellow buttons with translucent orange and yellow only to find that neither Sanwa or Gamerfinger makes orange translucent buttons.
But I’ve never used anything but Sanwa and have been using them nearly every day for the past few years so I’m hesitant to change, you know how the slightest change can throw you off. For quite a while I was used to playing on the last 6 and now I’m trying to retrain myself how to play on the first 6, and I don’t think I wanna add a different button feel on top of things.
Maybe I’ll wait a while before I add LEDs, or maybe I’ll just do translucent rims with solid plungers.
Just out of curiosity, is anyone using the red HBFS-G2s? I thought they looked quite orange looking in the pic at FocusAttack, but maybe they’d look more red in person and on stick.
