Anyone have one of these? Are they reliable?



I can get one from a dude for about $32 USD + shipping which would be about $12.
So about $44 USD for an agetec arcade stick.. worth it?

The stick has too much throw. Meaning it goes from left to right really far. That is it's major flaw.

I would recommend getting a Hori or Sammy PS2 stick, and a PS2 > DC convertor.

I don't like the little notches around the joystick that make it tough to perform certain fighting moves.
(Like half or quarter circle moves)

Other than that it's a great stick and seems extremely sturdy.
