Transitioning from a PC keyboard to my first arcade stick. After lots of time spent digging out info on forums i have no regrets. I can only recommend it to PC fighters out there!
The buttons are very responsive. The case is very comfortable even after playing for a few hours straight. The home/start button is a non issue i don't see how can anyone accidentally push them. The joystick will need some time getting used to, but just after 2 days i can do consistent combos with Oni in street fighter.
The out of the box mod was my main selling point as i tend to play at my friends who has his games on his xbox and i'm not a fan of the controller there.
If i ever going to buy another stick it will be a 100% an eightarc again!

I am new to arcade sticks and the fighting scene in general. After inquiry about different sticks, this seemed like the obvious choice. It's dual-modded out of the box and extremely well built. There is a learning curve involved but you get used to it. If you are a new player looking to transition to arcade sticks, the fusion model is a fantastic choice for the price.

Everything about this stick feels right. The weight is nice and heavy so it rests comfortably in your lap. Changing out buttons was simple and painless. It's very responsive (especially coming from my last stick) in terms of input. The aesthetics are simple and effective. A solid purchase! Very satisfied with this item!

My review for this product is very positive. It has everything a tournament player is going to need. I really hope that you guys keep making sticks for the future consoles and make it PS4/Xbox One/Xbox 360/PS3/PC compatible. Us tournament players need the variety as there is a wide spread of gametypes across all systems.

Really good arcade stick. The only things I don't like about it is sometimes it hard to tell when turbo is on or off, and the cord is on the side of the stick not in the front.

Putting a good rating on a product doesn’t necessarily make it good. I have searched the web high and low for info pertaining to arcade stick manufactures, makes, models. I am an avid fighting game enthusiast and tournament stream viewer (monster). Watching any and all fighting games that have a tournament/competitive scene and following the players that consistently make top 8 and or players who I genuinely enjoy there gameplay/personality. In search of a product that would allow me to hone the ability to execute inputs precisely and have less execution errors. Trolling the forums on sites such as SRK and eventhubs I came across eightarc. Having had some experience with Madcatz and Hori products (stick and pad) I asked my fellow stream monsters and fighting game enthusiast what they thought about eightarc in comparison? The answers and opinions I received were merely that, opinions. “It’s a matter of preference” I was told. Still unsure about what I should do I did some more research and watched unboxing’s, video reviews, comparison videos etc. With no hands on experience with the product I was skeptic about my purchase. After thinking it over I decided to give eightarc a go. I have never been more impressed with a product! Everything fit for me the feel, design, and the ability to go from ps3 to x360 or PC with the flip of a switch. I have at this time spent over a year with the product using it every day. I have yet to have a problem with inputs, dead buttons, dead zones, or anything for that matter. I wouldn’t recommend anything else for this reason. If the fighting games you play take you to multiple platforms you have no problem. This is a product that should not be overlooked in any way. Please don’t take my word for it try eightarc yourself! Any of my arcade stick needs for the future will fall on eightarc. My eightarc Ebony Fusion has made me a clear lifetime customer. Thank you eightarc.
