5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest. Stick. Ever August 30, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If in a joystick you seek affordability and portability then this stick isn't for you.

The Hori Real Arcade Pro VLX is the monument piece of arcade sticks.The front and top half of the Unit is made of metal. The side pieces and design of the stick matches that of an official Japanese Street Fighter IV Vewlix cabinet. The stick also uses a Sanwa JLF joystick and Sanwa OBSF-30 buttons, the highetst quality authentic Japanese arcade parts. The front bevel of the stick is set at a angle for your palms just like the Viewlix arcade cab. The base of this stick is really wide and very heavy. I am one of those people that belive so long as you can carry an arcade stick, It cannot be too heavy. With a lighter stick such as an Hori EX2 playing on the table may cause the stick to move about or slide around. The VLX stays put on my coffee table .

One of the other major draws is that this stick has 3 thumbscrews in the cord compartment that when removed allows you to open the stick like a hot rod car so that you can modify your stick (whilst voiding your warranty). So if you prefer certain Seimitsu arcade parts you can easily swap them out. As for modability and maintenence, the buttons are easily replaceable and the buttons have quick disconnects. The Sanwa JLF can be swapped out for a Seimits LS-32 or LS-56(with MS Plate) if you prefer a different type of joystick.

The only con I could say is the price, and for some it is definitely bigger than it needs to be. For most people a Madcatz TE would be a more practical choice, but if you are one that doesn't wan't a run of the mill product, get the VLX.

Edit: It's a few months later. Now this stick is sold out. I've been using this for home play. I've put in serious hours on using this stick. Nothing is changed. It is still the greatest stick ever built, but It seldom leaves the house. I don't regret this purchase. It's a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece of a controller September 27, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This arcade stick controller truly brings the arcade experience home.

Designed in collaboration with TAITO to recreate the TAITO "VEWLIX" Arcade cabinet and the stick uses authentic Sanwa stick and buttons.

The main feature for this controller has to be the fact that you can easily access the internal of the controller by simply unscrewing 3 screws. Maintenance and customization is a breeze to just about any other controllers out there.

Additionally, the Real Arcade Pro. series stick has the turbo function and the stick control toggle function.

Finally, it has a non-slip surface on the entire bottom and comes with an additional option board that you can mount the controller on to further enhance your stability.

This is the king of all arcade sticks and is a must buy for any player serious for an authentic arcade experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arcade experience at home February 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This joystick is pretty amazing. It looks great and has a great feel to it. It's just like having a full-sized cabinet joystick panel in front of you. The joystick and buttons feel great (if you have a MadCatz TE stick you're already familiar with them), and modding of the stick is amazingly easy. The top plate flips forward when you unscrew the panel and allows you access to everything. They made every effort to recreate the arcade experience.

If you're looking for a joystick to take to a local tournament or your friend's house, however, I can't recommend this stick on its own. It's extremely big and extremely heavy and after stuffing it in a duffel bag and carting it around a couple times, you'll want to find something more portable. I can't complain too much about this because I knew it going in and really just wanted it to use at home because it's just so impressive. If you want portability and a pretty solid experience overall, look into the MadCatz TE sticks. They're a little pricey themselves, but this baby is for people who have money to burn.
