I recently upgraded from a wireless stick to the MadCatz FightStick SE which I bought used for $35. After some time with it I started noticing problems, some of the buttons would at times fail to register, but more problematic was that the stick seems to have an issue with diagonal jumps when holding down a direction – so let’s say I’m trying to walk back and do a diagonal jump, the stick sometimes won’t register the jump.
I’m still a sort of casual player and don’t want to shell out $150 for a stick just yet at least, but have considered upgrading the stick/buttons to Sanwa parts. I’m thinking this will run me about $45-50 total? Would you guys say it would be worth it to upgrade this stick or should I just get rid of this thing and maybe look into a HORI EX Pro?
