Commercial Fightsticks from Hori, Qanba or Madcatz can be cost effective and at times mod friendly. That said, the durability of plastic - with the potential for broken cable doors, heavily scratched surfaces or worst of all, cracking after a fall - are tough to swallow when it happens to you. More often, a commercial joystick isn't as easy to swap parts or upgrade, especially if you desire to install a Korean joystick lever. AllFightSticks 14" cases are built-to-last, sturdy steel enclosures that are highly customizable, allowing you to install many of your favorite control panel layouts and components. Best of all, it's at a cost that rivals or beats other steel enclosures.
