Having been used to a fightpad in the past, (with mixed results, blistering being a big problem) this time I want to invest in a decent stick. The Mad Catz TE is crazy expensive here in the UK (£200! / $315) while I've found the Hori Pro V3 SA at a much more reasonable price. (£95 / $150). Both are meant to have good build quality using Sanwa parts, so I'm not really looking at the cheaper options.
Has anyone experience witht this (Hori Pro) stick, or any others in particular? I figured some feedback on the matter won't hurt my purchasing decision.
