dude, if you don't like the SF aniversary stick, but like happ sticks and buttons, why don't you just put happ stuff in you SF ani?

As far as Joys, I have these:
2 Fucked up Ultimate styles in my Big Red cab (need replacement)
2 Mas system sticks set up for DC, I want to add PS compatablility to them
1 Hori Fighting Stick SS for Sega Saturn

Thats it, used to have more, but no longer.

ok, heres a link 4 u.
http://www.arcadestickmonk.com/SFACmod.html

now I've never done one of these mods, infact I've never even touched a SF anni stick. But it looks easy enough. I would imagine its as good as a mas stick. Plus it works for ps and xbox right? its what I would do if I didn't like the stick. If you break something though, don't blame me ok.

I would also recommend getting a Hori Fighting Stick PS, its just like a Hori Fighting Stick SS except with an uglier color scheme and is for PS1. There was 1 that a member was selling for 15 shipped, I wish I had bought it. At the moment, I like playing my Hori more than my MAS sticks. Strange....

well i dont have the st stick but i know the mod is really easy to do(So i say go for it). i have a couple of sticks, i got the DC Agetec arcade stick it was pretty good but it even better when you put in a sanwa stick and button in it. also have the doa4 stick its really good( mostly use it for mame and stuff cause i dont have a x360 lol) but if your good at modding sticks it even better when you put in sanwa parts.

A Neo Geo stick 2 for PS2.
Great stick for the price I reckon, plus it's got a cool Neo Geo box.

Dood i had a thread earlier just like this one, the SF anniversary doesn't compare to a MAS stick. I have both, got the SF first (that thing sucks ass for KOF's), MAS is amazing.

I have the Hori Tekken 5 stick that came bundled with that game last year. It's pretty nice, I guess. Nice enough for me anyway.

* 1 Agetec
* Another Agetec (to be modded with Sanwa/Seimitsus and a PS1 PCB)
* HRAP1 modded with Sanwas

I'll be using the HRAP and modded Agetec as a universal controller for PC//DC/PS2/XBox and hopefully, in the future, the PS3/Wii too.

I don't favour the button layout or sticks of American cabs, personally. Doesn't seem comfortable to me. People's opinions seem to differ a helluva lot on this subject though. Try before you buy where possible and give them a thorough test run!

There is no American counterpart for a Mas Stick. A Mas sick is an American stick, Californian to be specific. They are made in Long Beach.

for you guys who want a link...

www.massystems.com Theres a phone number, just call them and place an order.

Ok, I've just checked out their website for the first time in a couple years, they are now making sticks for the new systems. The Gamecube one looks disgusting!
