    Default Stick Help. Dreamcast Agetec or PS2 Tekken (Hori?)

    I've come to realize I need a better arcade stick for my fighting games. This Street Fighter stick just isn't cutting it. So i'm torn between 2 decisions.

    1. A Dreamcast Agetec stick with an adaptor for Playstation/Playstation 2

    2. A PS2 Tekken Stick (Hori?) with an adaptor for Dreamcast.

    I haven't had a chance to test eaither of these sticks. So based on the sticks and the dependability of the adaptors (Maybe a DC to Playstation adaptor doesn't work well or something)... what would everyone here suggest?

    Thanks for the help

    Hori is the best, but the Tekken stick isn't amazing. Import one from japan or buy a massystems stick with an adapter. They use real arcade parts.

    www.massystems.com

    There site is down, but it should be back shortly.

    I've never used the Agetec, but I can tell you right now that the Tekken 5 stick is WAY, WAY better than the SF stick. The SF stick might as well be a freaking 4-way, what with how annoying it is to hit the narrow diagonals with circle gating. And the Tekken 5 buttons don't have the ridiculous travel depth, and don't come loose in their sockets from the factory.

    Thanks for the tips.

    I'm really not looking to spend too much (Massystems was pretty high if I recally correctly)

    Any links to a specific imported stick?

    Again, thanks

    the DC Agetec stick is just the US version of the official DC stick, right? If so, I give it a strong thumbs up. I bought one the day the DC came out to go with Virtua Fighter 3 and it's seen some seriously heavy use over the years but still works fine.

    In the last 4 years or so it's transitioned into more of a shmup stick than a fighter stick, and it's gotten me through many a bullet storms without a scratch

    I just recently ordered a Virtua Stick for PS2 since Play Asia had them on sale for $30, but it won't be coming in until Under Defeat ships (wanted to save on shipping!)...hopefully it functions well, because Ibara is in the same package and I'd love to have a good stick to use with Dodonpachi Daioujou and Mushihimesama
