I’ve been trying to get ahold of Finkle to build me some sticks, but I guess he is too busy which is understandable. I was wondering who are the other great stick makers because I would really like some custom sticks for the 360, one p360 american stick and one japanese stick. Thanks in advance.
For Japanese sticks, a Hori Real Arcade Pro model for the Xbox 360 is coming out on July 11th.
For American sticks, Ed from Arcadeinabox does P360s in Xbox 360 sticks. MAS does too but they overcharge for it. If you go with Ed, be sure to ask that he does not route for the P360 stick which makes it too high imo.
If you want to go the custom route, lots of people make good American and Japanese sticks such as Sex Instructor, Axis, Finkle, TMO, Jaxel, Byrdo, etc. Byrdo even recently made a stick case that was compatible with both American and Japanese sticks.
I would personally say TMO is the best. (yes better than Byrdo)
I just feel the combination of his precise skills and artistic eye + hand finishing make him the king.
And it is a personal attack, every stick I make is an attempt to dethrone you, you monopolizing whore
Big Pockets wins me over for originality and design (sorry Shaft Agent :P)
Fjod doesn’t make them often but his sticks are works of art.
Finkle is in my opinion the most consistant in his awesomness
Timoe has some of the cleanest and well design cases you will ever see available.
I think the best affordable stick maker is Zombie CPT. He was gone for a while and poked his head back in a few days ago. I don’t know if he still makes stick but man! The paint! The wiring! Very perfect and very clean. Look at this!
