This stick pop up a few days ago in amazon, I didn’t found in the USA store, so maybe is an exclusive european stick.
The buttons are sanwa and the case is looking good, but all the rest is a mistery, a dual pcb sound good but maybe can be like the mayflash stick, needing other controller for detecting.
I didn’t found an official store/page, the price is 179,99 €, 149,99 pounds.
It’s confirmed you need another controller, plug in, for play it
An interesting addition is the possibility to easy customize the template, button are easy customizable too but the jostick apparently it’s glued, I look for more unboxing to see the quality of the product, at least is an interesting choice for pcb modding in EU.
@ £140, do not buy that, would only pay 1/3 of that for the case and parts… Padhacks and third party are way better options if you’re willing to do the work. I’m sure you can buy second hand or an upgraded last gen stickcan be had for the same or lowrt price at your location.
For a new full sanwa stick with that case is an ok Price, the problem is the dependence of one pad connection, for 45-55 dolars more you can have the basic brook pcb upgrade (If you don’t want pad dependance, I don’t know the input latency yet) , padhacking an old gen stick is cheaper, sure, but not always people have that choice.
Naw people always have a choice. Padhack it yourself, learn to Padhack or pay someone to padhack, or use a brook pcb or adapter. All options would be a better performing and cheaper option than a stick that requires another controller to sync and untested input Latency, they offer no advantage to ask for That much and expect to sell a lot of sticks. That mfg should of made a deal with brooks like everyone else then it could an option you can recommend to someone.
I am trying to figure out how i can create my own artwork template out of the optional spare art that came with this…i no idea where to startHelp on this appreciated! i will share the template when i am done…
Now my view…
it really is a shame it needs a controller… because other then that it’s great!
It has a colour coded sticker on the inside to help you remember the buttons wire colours when you change them.
The case is really quite rugged and it has a metal powder coated bottom, this adds weight in a good way making it feel sturdy similar in weight to a Hori rap V.
The cable compartment is better then the Hori rap V to be honest (the cable storage door doesn’t fall off).
No artwork templates online yet hamper customization for me, also finding a manufacture website or contact to ask for one is proving difficult.
i swapped out the spring for a 2lb, but that is my preference.
for PC/steam gaming (no controller needed…great stick).
2/5 for consoles…(let down only by controller hanging out the stick in a unsightly fashion).
I didn’t think i would give a fight-stick that needs a controller this score! i am really tempted to put a brook universal game board in this thing since i like the case so much and bin off the controller option…good shape, good weight, good customization and good price (in UK where import, eBay and amazon are our only other options).
