Hi SRK, sorry to be bugging for help as my 1st post but thanks in advance
So I just got done looking over this thread before anyone hops on my case about not looking for info. The situation I am in is that I am going to be getting a stick in 2 weeks. I mainly only play UMvC3 right now but will be playing Skullgirls and probably SF4AE/2012 (WTF ever the newest one is) in the future.
I have a few questions regarding which stick to get and why. After reading that amazing thread I noticed that the stick I was initially going to get (HRAP3 SA) apparently doesn’t use Sanwa buttons and I am not sure if that should concern me. Being relatively new to the FGC I am pretty educated about most of this from friends, so I do know that anything without Sanwa Denshi parts is a broken stick waiting to happen.
On that note the HRAP3 SA gets fantastic reviews, praise, and I know that the stick is Sanwa but not the buttons apparently.
I am basically juggling between whether I should get a TE or the HRAP3 SA (or something else?)
I am basing all of this on what I can get for $160 so keep that in mind.
I’ve heard that the HRAP3 SA is lighter than some fight sticks and that can cause issues moving around; confirm/deny?
I might have other questions later, I can’t really think of every single detail that I want to know about but any advice for someone getting their first fight stick would be appreciated.
Again, I read the thread I posted in my 1st paragraph, I am simply wondering if anyone has owned both sticks and could compare/contrast or if there is anything I should know about the HRAP/TE sticks or other options.
PS: Console=PS3 if that changes anything :>
Thanks again SRK
