    Just finished modding my Eightarc Fusion, now with more Team GGA:

    I'm playing around with different balltops and dust washer configurations, I like the custom painted GGA logo (custom painted by GandaKris, sold by Vicko on SRK) or mesh sanwa balltops and either a regular silver or powder-coated black JLF Link by PhreakMods. Similar to my MK stick, but this one I plan to use for Tekken and Injustice next year. Plexi etched by Art's Hobbies.

    Thanks for looking!

    GGA HAN You have different sticks for various games?! I need to get on that, Lol. That 8arc looks sweet, how's it feel, but the Tekken one is tempting from MCZ.

    Eightarc sticks are awesome because they are dual mod right out of the box and they basically a Qanba Q4RAF with the start button moved off the face of the stick and placed near the turbo/home/ect. If I were to make a metaphor and compare it to a car it would be the Nissan Skyline GTR R34, and for comparison the Hori Real Arcade VLX would be a Ferrari 360 Modena. I'm not sure what a TE would be, maybe a Subaru Impreza WRX? lol

    Really horrible iPod photos of my new custom Stick. I'll try to post better resolution photos if I'm not lazy. Also, maybe in the future plan to replace the Balltop/Buttons with Purple Translucent Balltop/ Seimitsu Buttons or get Sanwa Buttons.

    - Sanwa Translucent Smoke Balltop & Joystick.
    - Seimitsu Smoke Translucent Screw In Buttons.
    - Paewang PCB
    - RJ45 USB Cord
    - Stained Black Tiger Maple Shell.

    Harley's mah bitch. <3.

    Any of you guys have experience with the Qanba sticks?
    I'm really thinking about picking one up to see how different it feels from the madcatz TEs

    i have the qanba q4raf, also have the madcatz TE,
    the qanba blows it out of the water! (on a number of things not just the fact its dual modded out of the box)

    I'm left handed and I play stick on standard way everyone plays it. With the buttons being on the right hand side and the joystick on the left hand side.

    If you're unsure Quanba also has this option.

    Anyone know where I can find a blank template for a Hori EX2 ? -Link-
    Doing art for a friend cross-country and I cant find anything promising.
    iplaywinner has one, but I don't trust their templates at all, the last time I tried one of theirs it came out COMPLETELY skewed.

    Question: does anyone know what the difference is between "cross" and "line?" I'm looking into buying my first stick, but i dont know what these mean (2 versions of the same stick), and i dont want to get the wrong one. i've heard it has somethign to do with the cord, but this person didnt know for sure. any help would be appreciated.

    If you are talking about the Madcatz SFxT sticks then the only thing that is different is the artwork. Just compared the specs and there are no differences in the hardware itself. Both have same cable lenght, Sanwa stick and buttons & same case.

    Wow theyve really dropped the prices on those! Smart move. Its the only way Madcatz is going to be able to compete with Qanba and Eightarc who offer dual system sticks for basically the same price Madcatz used to sell round 1 and 2 T.E's for.
