If you put sanwa parts in an SE is it just as good as a TE? Seems like a lot of the pros play with a TE.
It’s all a matter of taste. IMO, the TE has a better case. I’m not a fan of the slope that the SE has. The SE is more portable though.
I was wondering about this, the TE looks sleeker.
I have a fully modded SE and my feancee has a mustly unmodded (we changed the dust washer) TE. Stock parts in hers. I prefer my SE mysef. The TE feels like I parked a tank on my lap. Thats not bad for some players but I much prefer my lighter SE to the TEs bulkiness.
I made a thread about this very thing a few days ago and the general consensus was to go with the TE because the box itself is of far higher quality and weight than the SE. Also the TE has a small door to hold the cord when not in use which is universally praised.
