    A company called DragonSlay seems to have gotten ahold of the SFV Fightpads and have done some rebranding and slight modifications to the controller. I recently purchased one and the following has changed:

    -Smaller d-pad
    -Higher resistance on analog stick
    -Bumpers are less click

    If you guys saw my previous experience on the SFV Fightpad, you know the d-pad failed on me after a month. I purchased one of the DragonSlays some time ago, before the revision, and it is practically a carbon copy of the original, down to the questionable durability of the d-pad. Hasn't snapped, but I fear it will if I keep using it.

    I'll keep an update on how the newer pad operates for me. It feels different, so I wouldn't be surprised if they reworked the construction of it to fix the issue.

    1-Week Update:

    New d-pad isn't totally uncomfortable, but it has loosened up a bit and that is pretty worrisome. I think it'll last for a bit regardless, but other than that, it feels fine. The d-pad being smaller can be off-putting, but it's something a lot of people can adjust to.

    Why did they have to keep that analog stick?

    No idea, but for what it's worth, the smaller d-pad makes it even harder to accidentally bump. Not to mention, some people do play on analog stick (like Wolfkrone).

    12/5/2018 Update:

    Pad still going strong. D-Pad is certainly far more durable than the original FightPad PRO. I've not opened it (don't want to mess anything up lol), but the pad feels like it has quite a bit more life left.

    It gets my recommendation for now as a 6-button fightpad to go with.

    I bet that PDP is going to announce their MK11 controller soon and it'll be crap just like the last one.
