Tes+ stick acting weird?

Hi! I just got a madcatz tes+ for sfv.
However, my stick seems to be acting a bit weird.

If I push the stick harder after it touches the gate (square), it moves about 1 mm more.

This is getting on my nerves…

It’s not a huge issue, but I can’t help but feel that something might be wrong!

Is this normal?

Ah sorry. New to the forum. Posted the question on that thread! Thx!
