Compact, light, and affordable, the RAC-J500B is a decent entry point into the world of hitboxes. The jump button is larger than the other buttons, which is standard for stickless controllers.

The interior is neat and spacious, which should make mods such as swapping buttons easier for you. The suction cups at the bottom provide stability on a surface.
