Performance

The gameplay feel is crisp, thanks to the Sanwa parts. Inputs feel tight, and the unit is responsive overall. A precise angle was clearly chosen for the slope of the arcade stick to provide maximal comfort for the player. With the addition of a touchpad, besides meaning that handling PlayStation operations is more fluent, it is possible to fully utilize training mode features in some fighting games.

Hardware

The weight and thickness of the unit are rather perfect, and the case is easy to open. The back panel can be unhinged with a single latch in order to swap out buttons. Wire connectors for buttons are of the same color for optimal user friendliness. Pulling up on the unit while holding the joystick in place allows for the swift removal of the joystick.

The detachable braided cable is convenient, and the fact that most of the cable is inside the unit while playing means that it does not impede movement.

Appearance

The blue-gray aluminum chassis is brushed, anodized, and illuminated, withstanding a multitude of battles. The lights have various options. There is a service available if one would like to have images and text laser-etched onto the arcade stick, but this service seems to be only provided during select events.
