Absolute best arcade stick

So I’ve been wondering for a while now, but which arcade stick do you think is the very best? Please try to name just one; any comments would really help me.

They’re all the same because they all use the same parts

Really depends on what you mean. Best production stick? Subjective, but I’d put it on the Hori VLX. But, that can easily vary by what you mean by “best”. Best mix and mingle of price and functionality or moddability? That all depends. What Stick/Controller Should I Buy? Read the Guide on Pg 1 Before Posting is for this

Of custom and modded sticks, this could go anywhere, the sky’s the limit on those. There’s been too many great ones, but everyone has their favorites. One of mine was this one by TheRealNeoGeo:


It really just comes down to preference as sticks come in all shapes and sizes. That being said madcatz tournament editions and hori real arcade pros are very nice sticks

It definitely comes down to preference, but I know that I couldn’t use a stick at all until I got one that was heavy enough that it didn’t slide out of my hands whenever I was doing motions with the stick itself.

If it’s too light or too small, I personally find it not worth any amount of money. That’s me, though.

Personally, I’m a huge fan of B15SDM.

Super Star Oystick F-90

the one you mod to your likings

A custom made B15 stick made to my likings would be my ideal stick.

The Madcatz tournament edition stick is generally accepted as a good, solid, stick.

That too. When you have B15 monies you can purchase a cab though. His DonPachi stick was sick.

I am waiting for my (used) one in the mail :slight_smile:

<< My precious!! :smiley:

Sega Virtua Stick High Grade, modded with a new PCB of course.


Now that is sexy.

The one that wins you a tournament.
