Seriously! I didn't actually see it advertised anywhere, and had to search for Tekken last night and it was surprisingly 50% off! I've been really interested in DBFighterz but couldn't justify dropping $60+ the price of a stick on a game I might not enjoy, as I haven't played a fighting game in probably 5 years, and don't own a gamepad currently.

Bought this half awake at 1am on Steam 50% off, went on Amazon and found This Qanba Carbon Stick with "free overnight" (technically same day) delivery, and just got it about 30 minutes ago! All things considered, $85 is not a bad entry price for what is arguably the most solid/consistent PC fighting game right now, from what i've read.

Qanba Drone if you're on PS4 and do not care about artwork swapping. Venom Arcade Stick if you're on PS4 and want artwork swapping. Mayflash F300 if you're on Xbox or Switch and do not care about artwork swapping. Mayflash F500 if you're on Xbox or Switch and want artwork swapping. Qanba Carbon if you're PC-only and care about artwork swapping.

All of these sticks can be easily modified with higher quality levers or buttons at a later date. Personally, I went with the Venom Arcade Stick, upgraded it with Sanwa parts, used it for a few years and then switched to a full custom.

Honestly if $60 is your limit you'd probably be better off sticking with pad as you won't be at a disadvantage with a pad versus a stick, honestly the main reason to rock a stick if you want play in arcades too.

For $80 the Qanba Q1 is probably the best inexpensive stick I've ever used, it's built solid and responsive. There's a later, follow-up version, the Qanba "Carbon" which looks to be similar but is only $60 although I personally haven't used that version of the stick.

Be aware that both are PS3/PC and up to Namco for PS4 T7 support, which I believe has been confirmed

No prob!

There's other factors to incorporate too besides cost.

  • Level-of-effort. How much time do you want to put into this? Do you have any wood working skills?

  • Time spent playing. If you're only gaming for an hour a week, is it worth it to drop a ton of money in a stick?

    If you're interested in a Japanese style arcade stick, there's a load of options out there at various price points. For example ...

    8bitdo's NES30 Arcade Stick

  • Pro: Bluetooth connectivity; no wires to drag across the room
  • Pro: Parts can be swapped without any case modifications; Sanwa parts drop in directly
  • Con: The stock stick is okay
  • Con: The unit is $80. If you start modding it, you can reach $130-$140 easily

    Qanba's Carbon

  • Pro: Parts can be swapped without any case modifications; Sanwa parts drop in directly
  • Pro: Stock parts are quite good
  • Pro: Price of $60 is more than fair.
  • Con: Corded

I 100% agree. Mine is pretty budget, spent half of what it looks like you did, and even with that step down it's better than a controller.

Personally I find that the double taps for IADs and such are infinitely easier on a stick. Plus I like the button arrangement better, especially for assists. It's so easy to forget about trigger buttons when you're learning the game.

u/Spockrocket · 2 pointsr/PS4

If you want to use an actual stick, I'd say it's probably not worth getting the Alpha. Miniature sticks such as the Alpha and the Hori Fighting Stick Mini tend to be uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time, and are made using lower quality parts than full-size sticks. If you want a stick, the cheapest one I'd recommend would probably be the Qanba Carbon. I own one and it's a fairly nice stick for beginners. Technically it's not a PS4 controller, but Street Fighter 5 and a few other games support it in Legacy Mode. Check to see if the other fighting games you have support Legacy controllers. If they do, this is a great option for your price range. Otherwise, your next best bet is probably the Qanba Drone.

If you want a pad, the revamped fightpad pro is a good choice. I've never used one but the new model has gotten significantly better reviews than the problematic previous model. Personally I went with the Hori FC4, but the price has gone significantly up since that model isn't being manufactured anymore. The newer model is only $40 though, so that fits in your budget.

Excellent answer, thanks.

I have the following coming this week:

Qanba joy stick

Sanwa GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor

Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK OEM Red Ball Top Handle Arcade Joystick

Basic, middle of the road stuff. I was thinking of doing one of those Raspberry pi inside of a fight stick setups, but I kind of like the look of the Vilros mini NES.

Thanks again for the response.

Can't find the hardware thread so

First off lemme say that no one I know is dropping $120+ on something for little ol' me.

But if someone will spend a little less and then I can plunk some better buttons in there, that sounds great to me. I'm looking at these 4 options right now:

Doesn anyone have any experience with these out of the box and after modding? Any issues? I will also be using this to play GG and possibly BB if that makes any difference.

I was recently looking for my first fight stick and, like you, was looking for something more affordable. After doing some research I finally settled on the Qanba Carbon. It's right at $60, and I've been really impressed with it so far. Now granted I haven't played on any other fight stick than this, so I have nothing to compare it to, but it's been great so far. Also, it's important to note that this isn't a universal stick, but it works for ps3, pc, and android.

In terms of games to play, Street Fighter V or Guilty Gear Rev are where you want to be. Street Fighter, despite all the complaints people have, is the game with the biggest playerbase, so you will find the most resources for that game. Guilty Gear has some of the best ingame resources for learning, and plenty of out of game resources so it also an excellent place to start.

As for prehipherals, if you want to try out stick on PC, I've heard the Qanba Carbon ($60) is a good place to start. I personally ordered one last week, can't report on the quality until it comes in, but the reviews are good. If you want a controller and are willing to learn dpad, the Hori Fighting Commander ($40) is the best pad on the market, I own one and it feels/plays fantastic. Also the fighting commander has ps3/ps4 support if you want to play in tournaments (most are played on ps4).

Get the Qanba Drone dude. I think that works on PC too and it's a better stick. You can also mod the Drone and it's from a more reputable stick maker. You could also look for a Qanba Carbon which is the same body as the Qanba Q1, which was one of my first sticks and worked great. Here's a link to it:

It also has clamps that you can clamp it onto a desk with which is pretty cool and works better than you might think it would. It's also cheaper.
