HARP V3 or Qanba Q4

Hey all,<br><br>as the title says, which is better?<br>Currently I own Madcatz WWE Brawlstick which is nice and all, but I want better.<br>Thanks

I owned both. Started with HRAP V3, sold it and then bought Qanba Q4 RAF. Qanba works on PC, PS3 and Xbox360, while Hori works only with PC and 1 console. Qanba is not too wide and I prefer the top panel on it to Hori. I managed to scratch off the paint from Hori’s top panel by accident. Qanba is more practical (IMO), especially if you have friends that use different consoles or you go to tournaments that run games on a console different from yours. They both use Sanwa buttons. Also, the USB cable on Qanba is much longer. If you play on Xbox 360, the Qanba also comes with a headphone jack (I never tried it out, because I have PS3). And it’s easier to carry around.

Gonna bump this thread cause I’m torn between these two sticks as well. I really like how the Hori has a little more spacing between the joystick and the buttons, but I like how the qanba can be used on ps3 and 360. I’ve also heard the qanbas have some quality control issues. I really don’t want to have to worry about my stick breaking.<br><br>Edit - I notice the Hori HARP V3 SA Kai is only $112 on gamestop’s website.  This may be too good of a deal to pass up.<br>
