Everyone modding there sticks to be tighter, stiffer and with a more short preciser throw, is making adjustments to improve there stick. There is a stick already out there that exceeds any of the mods possible and is known to those who use the SUZO as the best stick ever made, you rreally have to use the suzo to understand that nothing can compare to it. When I was younger it was the stick I was brought up on, and when I played on other machines, I more or less couldn’t, the sticks that you all feel are quality sticks, are more r less unusable to me, I’m not saying that they are poor sticks, it’s that the SUZO is so good, that when I use another stick it’s like I’ve never played before.
If you have never used a SUZO before your performance will be boosted dramatically. Your lucky in a way as you have hd to work harder to pull of them moves. The SUZO is so cheap that you can’t miss the opportunity to buy and try one out.
There are 3 SUZO sticks, 2 are out of production and are very sought after, I recently aquire dthem both and will give full in depth reveiws and rundowns on parts etc.
1: SUZO 500 - Cherry Microswitch’s and tight super short precise throw - Still in production.
2: SUZO [Rubber Tension Centering Gromit] - This is the predasessor to the 500 but does not use a spring, instead a large rubber gromit takes care of the entire centering mechanism, and is more consistent than a spring in positioning. Is said to be superior to the modern 500, so therfor possibly the best stick for fight games depending on your biews on the holy grail the suzo inductive.
3: SUZO UNIVERSAL INDUCTIVE: This is also out of production. This jpystick is the same as the 500 but uses an inductive ferite pcb, so no moving parts, it uses a spring for centering. As it is inductive it is better for gsmes that take advantage of an analog control with variations of input ie pressure sensative movement, and degrees of direction. As most fight games just understand left is left right is right, and aprt from diaganol inputs there is no detection of variation, when you move left it’s just one input you can’t move faster or slower the garder you push, and there is no variation in detection between left and diagonal left up, it’s simply 8 way. This stick is still great for fighting games, but those games will not take full adavantage of what the stick has to offer.
If anyone else has experience of all 3 and give some enlightenment before I can plug the other 2 in and test them out fully, please add your thoughts. And if anyone is af=ter either of the sticks I maybe tempted to sell if price is right.
PICS COMIN SOON
