Depends on your stick and if the gate can be swapped. I mod every one of my fightsticks as well as build them for retro arcade machines.
BTW.. square gates are the best.. maybe you should learn how to properly use a fightstick versus modding the gate? No knock.. just saying from experience. Also quality of components make a big difference.. sanwa all day.
Man.. I hate it when your girl has to leave my place to come back to you..
