I love this stick! It feels great in my hand and the weight of the thing is just perfect!
I have to thank PlayAsia for the extremely great and FAST shipping! I got my stick after only TWO working days (four if you count the weekend), and I live in Sweden!
Real arcade feel, amazing buttons comparable to sanwa.
If you are a fighting fan, get this baby, it's silent too.
silent and sturdy
This THE best console stick you can buy aside from custom made sticks ( and you will pay out the @$$ anyway ), the price is very very nice, while the shipping is a fair bit this is justified because of the weight etc, I got mine in 2 days from fed ex.
On to the review-
The stick itself is Sanwa while the green ball like the green and yellow buttons are HORI brand, these are plug in's unlike the US HRAP models which are soldered on, making this the best HRAP model for mods and taking it apart is a joke. What can be said about this stick which has not already been said ? The stick is amazing and very accurate, the buttons while not being sanwa are pretty responsive and of a good quality.
The overall build and weight is a tad misleading, first of all the inside and black rim is a hard ( but good quality ) plastic while the back and top plate is metal, compared to my PS2 large model this thing is pretty light but its heavy enough that it wont slide around but light enough you wont break your wrist lifting it.
Also ( as far as I know ) this is the SECOND version of the HRAP1, meaning it no longer has the easy to scratch mirror plate, it still reflects but has less problems with dirt and scratches, also the sanwa mounting plate has been CHANGED, this means mounting certain other sticks can pose a problem down the road, but its not a major deal.
This really is the best stick you can buy for around this price that has a real sanwa stick inside which is not made in some online custom stick makers basement, while custom sticks in the long run may be better, for anyone who is not stinking rich then this stick is your only option, unless you want some sub par junk for a bit less which will wear out much faster, trust me fork up the shipping and cash for this baby, you wont regret it.
Anyone who longs for the feeling of arcades or wants a better controler for modern or classic fighting games and schmups will instantly fall in love with this, a word of warning though, it may take some people a while to get used to if you have not used an arcade stick for a number of years.
This stick is pritty darn good, buttons arent great, as they are not sanwa buttons, but hori buttons, however the sanwa stick is decently responsive for tekken. I plan on removing the hori buttons and replacing them with sanwa buttons.
Great stick... a bit expensive but i guess its worth it. Beware there might be a import tax once it arrives at ur door.
lightning fast shipping.. took like 2 days. Nice Sanwa stick, and buttons could be better but still great.
