I have just joined these boards when I finally got my copy of SF4 and Mad Catz SE Fightstick. I read all over the forums people modding out their sticks/buttons etc. and they seem to notice a considerable improvement over stock.
I have been using my SE with stock stick for about 2-3 days now and it performs pretty good. Of course not knowing how a Sanwa or Seimitsu stick would compare to the stock, I am not in a position to compare them.
Although, by reading the posts I am convinced that it is a better move to just replace the stock stick. However, I am wondering if anyone that have experience playing with stock stick then with the mods would share what they felt was(were) the improvement(s) overall? I’d appreciate your input.
