Bought a brawlstick back in December intending to mod, never got around to it, I'm sure this would be cheaper to just buy this outright, and the curved button layout is better for me too. What do I do with the brawlstick now though :(

Mod it anyway. That's what I did with mine. New stick, buttons, and art is real easy to do on those.

I just bought a Tekken 6 Hori stick at a local game store preowned for 29.99 preowned. These things any good?


I've owned one of those and I can sincerely tell you there is no remote point of comparison with the Mad Catz/Sanwa TE stick I own now.

Its really easy to mod it, barely took me like 2-3 hours to replace the buttons/stick/art. And it was my first one too, came out great

Yep. Everything is super easy. Art you take it to FedEx Office/Kinkos and have them do a lami -label, which is a big sticker, and slap it on. It sort of feels good when you get done with it. Like you made it your own.

I have the MvC2 TE, 2 PS3 TE's and a 360 EX-SE, plus 3 SE sticks, why am I still fighting the urge to pull the trigger on this?

Sellers are moving them for about $60 after shipping

These are the similar to the Madcatz TE sticks but with a different body a slightly different layout. So they have the quality Sanwa parts.


This is a TE stick (well, TE-S to be more specific). Main differences are more reliable PCB, Namco Noir button layout (versus the Vewlix layout of other TE sticks), artwork & that gorgeous 3-translucent color case. I prefer the Vewlix layout but that's just personal preference.

Nothing is wrong with this model,is the same as the other models,just the artwork is diferent,maybe because of the Soul Calibur brand?


Nothing's wrong with this model versus other Madcatz TE sticks. Besides the translucent case, the other major difference is the button layout.

I just bought a Tekken 6 Hori stick at a local game store preowned for 29.99 preowned. These things any good?


For $30 pre-owned, it's subpar at best. Joystick lever has a much bigger deadzone, buttons aren't as responsive/sensitive & very lightweight. The Sanwa-based sticks are in a whole other league especially for $30 more for this SCV stick. IMHO, only thing good is that the battery last a very long time. If you plan on keeping it then I recommend getting a piece of velcro strap & slap that USB dongle onto the side of the case somewhere so you don't lose it whe not in use.

Yeah it is wireless...

Can I just modify it to improve the controls or is it a wireless problem?


IMHO, not worth it as others have said. Adding weight is easy by putting rolls of pennies in there but lots of soldering work to do everything else.

If Amazon & Buy.com are sold out for this price then eBay is your next best place to buy. All of the Sanwa parts (JLF joystick lever & OBSF buttons) alone are worth $55+ if purchased from Focus Attack & Arcade Shock (most popular online vendors for Japanese arcade parts). This is my fav. TE stick by Madcatz due to that beautiful case & a heck of a deal!

Dang it, I'm trying to reduce sticks! Great price!

The person that asked about the Tekken stick, at the price point of the SC stick it is just better to buy the good stick instead of modding the T6 stick, cost of pieces alone is gonna be the cost of the SC stick plus the T6 is really uncomfortable to mod since you will have to solder and dremmel the case. I had the T6 stick, worked ok, but does not compared to having pro parts stick. I would buy this one and sell the T6 if I was you.

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

oh well... I went with a preferred seller (Portable Guy) for a few bucks more and got cancellation email today...
"Upon receipt of your order we discovered that we are out of stock on the item you purchased."
(order was placed just 25 minutes after OP... ;/ )

guess this is the world telling me that I should just save my money and stick with my TE

Amazon has it in stock for $99.99 (both versions). It's $60 less than the default but it could also be the "last hoorah" pricing for it.

No need to bump. Deal is dead. The listings have been removed from Rakuten and both eBay and the Amazon Marketplace have returned to the $100 price point, sadly. :-(
