Perfect for a new fightstick user. One star taken off because it uses a square gate, which is way less intuitive motion-wise. You can (VERY) easily mod this to use a sanwa octagon gate, just some screwing involved and then replace the gate on the bottom of the joystick.The gate is what restricts the joysticks movement to certain directions. A square gate just makes things harder for most people that aren't already used to it, so if you're serious about it, consider modding to an octagon gate. Why this is important can be seen with quarter circle motions. On a square gate, you have to press down, forward, up, and forward for the game to recognize the input. On an octagon, this is cut down to two motions, down then forward.
