Reviews around way (5.00 of 5)

  • The stick felt a little loose, but in a good way which made it easier to move, but not too loose where leaving it to rest would cause you to move
  • I still feel something weird while I'm trying to pull off the fireball or dragon punch sequences, I'd say it is also necessary to add a stronger spring to the stick and that way the "Arcade feel like" would be much better
  • I had to actually get used to it as I was inputting commands way faster than the game could read resulting in me not able to do forward, down, angle turns.
  • I think this is more an issue of me needing to find a better way to secure it and get used to it
  • I prefer them that way to ease the weight of my lap while playing

Reviews around arcade (5.00 of 5)

  • | L+M+HPro's:+ Authentic Arcade Stick experience at the comfort of your home+ Sanwa Stick and Buttons+ PS Button+ Nice
  • Sporting a full Sanwa set-up (stick + buttons), the RAP V3 SA is one of the best arcade sticks that money can buy, and is extremely affordable as well (off Amazon, at least)
  • I still feel something weird while I'm trying to pull off the fireball or dragon punch sequences, I'd say it is also necessary to add a stronger spring to the stick and that way the "Arcade feel like" would be much better
  • I own a Mad Catz TE, Mad Catz SE, and this V3 SA and this is by far my favorite arcade stick that I own

Reviews around build (5.00 of 5)

  • Buttons are super sensitive, stick handles play nicely, strong build
  • I do highly recomend this product to people who want something other than the MadCatz TE stick because well I know that on the TE arcade stick its more hard and expesive to get it, anyways the buttons and stick on the TE stick are SANWA same with the REAL ARCADE PRO V3 SA
  • Buttons are super sensitive, stick handles play nicely, strong build
  • Responsive, well built, sanwa buttons and stick at an affordable price

Reviews around game (5.00 of 5)

  • if you love fighting games pick this up it will not disappoint.
  • This stick does improve your game.
  • The Capcom games are generally easier to move around with, for SNK games like KOF however I seem to have more issues so far

Reviews around look (5.00 of 5)

  • Love the big surface area to lay my big hands on & good looking transparent cases on some models (TE-S Chun-Li & SC5 sticks).4
  • All in all, the HRAP V3 SA is a great stick for anyone looking to bust into the fighting game scene, or for seasoned veterans looking to replace their old stick
  • PS3/360/PC compatiblity right out of the box with a good looking design especially the translucent cases

Reviews around design (4.03 of 5)

  • As the pictures show, it's a simplistic, minimal design with some markings around the stick/buttons, and nothing more
  • While the TE has a nice design, Hori builds their sticks with higher grade plastic (older HRAPS are built like tanks).with this new design, AND the cheaper price, there's no need to grab a madcatz TE.I personally have owned 5 different TE
  • PS3/360/PC compatiblity right out of the box with a good looking design especially the translucent cases
  • I prefer this design to the Mad Catz artwork and glossy finish
  • I do highly recomend this product to people who want something other than the MadCatz TE stick because well I know that on the TE arcade stick its more hard and expesive to get it, anyways the buttons and stick on the TE stick are SANWA same with the REAL ARCADE PRO V3 SA

Reviews around weight (4.03 of 5)

  • Good weight to it, a bit light, but good.+ Very solid stick and responsive to movement, so take it slow.
  • I prefer them that way to ease the weight of my lap while playing
  • I do highly recomend this product to people who want something other than the MadCatz TE stick because well I know that on the TE arcade stick its more hard and expesive to get it, anyways the buttons and stick on the TE stick are SANWA same with the REAL ARCADE PRO V3 SA
  • I can tell you for sure that it really worth it!The joystick is not that heavy (actually I'd say it has just the perfect weight), the buttons layout is very comfortable
  • Real deal hefty weight (12.1-pounds) to it.2

Reviews around button (3.92 of 5)

  • The buttons are very responsive, and while I've had some trouble with the square gate that comes standard in the stick, practice will continue to alleviate circle motions for characters with those types of moves
  • Responsive, well built, sanwa buttons and stick at an affordable price
  • Great feel, buttons are responsive, stick works great, no complaints
  • It does not feel cheap or shoddy, buttons and stick feel extremely arcade
  • The start button is on the front(unlike the MCTE, which has a slightly different button layout, and the start button on the back of the unit, out of the way) although only the most frantic button mashers would even come close to pressing it during play

Reviews around catz (1.00 of 5)

  • Before the release of the Real Arcade Pro V3 SA, I preferred the Mad Catz TE stick due to it's button layout and case shape
  • I own a Mad Catz TE, Mad Catz SE, and this V3 SA and this is by far my favorite arcade stick that I own
  • The two most notable companies producing these sticks are Mad Catz and Hori
  • Where this stick differs from the Mad Catz TE sticks is in the case design
  • First of all, Hori took a note from Mad Catz and began using the button layout on the TE sticks
