So how good is the Fighting Edge anyway?


#1

Hey, I’m new here. Been lurking for a few months. Glad to be here!

Anyway, I hear a lot of people preaching the gospel about the Hori Fighting Edge, but is it really worth the $200? I’ve been through my fair share of sticks, and the Fighting Edge looks awesome. What do the parts feel like? Is it worth ditching my modded Qanba Q1 for?

I don’t know the FE by feel but i know the price is not just about the Hayabusa and Kuros


#3

Yeah, I think the LEDs and the screen are the things keeping the price so steep.


#4

If you want the parts, just but them separately and stick them into your Q1.


#5

Oh, right. I forgot they could be purchased separately. facepalm

So what are the parts like compared to Sanwa/Seimitsu? I’ve never been terribly fond of Hori’s stock buttons in their older sticks. The Namco stick had some great buttons, but the Fighting Stick Wii and the Tekken 5 weren’t that great, in my opinion.

Use the search. There is a wealth of knowledge about the joystick and buttons from the FE here.
