Simply a great stick. Only thing is the stick stains easily with finger prints and smudges.

Simply one of the best if not the best, professional fightstick market. The best.

The best money can buy. If you are a serious player this is the stick for you.

this is the hottest fight stick ever made.
when i saw it the first time, i was so struck by it's appearance, i went out and bought glasses that matched it. and then i started to buy everything i saw made of translucent plastic. i even started swapping my consoles and handhelds out for ones that were translucent, or replacing their housing myself.
i refreshed eightarc's website and twitter feed several times a day for the next two months while i waited for it to come back in stock. the day it came back in stock, i purchased it, within hours of it's listing.
a week later, i had a box on my front porch.
i tore open the packaging, my heart pounding in anticipation. i put on my Oliver People's Sheldrake Crystal glasses, to ensure i had the best experience possible while pulling the stick out. when my hands grazed the plastic the first time, it was as good as shotgunning an entire french press of dark roast. my fist clasped the shiny, transparent ball. my right hand fell softly into place on the genuine sanwa buttons. i pressed them. i smiled. i pressed them again. i smiled wider.
i stared in awe at the stick a minute longer, before busting open the side compartment to pull out the usb cable. i pondered a moment about whether a side compartment was superior, and quickly determined i preferred the cable not to touch my legs. who would want a cold cable dangling between their legs?
i loaded up street fighter iv arcade edition. i entered an online lobby and chose ryu(obviously) and owned some noobs. the buttons reacted perfectly to my every press, and stick slid with a satisfying click in each of the 8 directions. in case there was any worry about having an inferior gate(i.e. any type of gate the pros don't use), the eightarc comes with the Best Gate Available(because the pros use it), the Square Gate. another nifty thing: the start button is tucked away on a panel, meaning no accidental presses, like on the Q4. everything about this stick is perfect. it is weighted so as to not hop around your lap, but not so heavy that it ever becomes uncomfortable. it's pre dual modded, all the parts are sanwa, the start/select/etc buttons are a good out of the way place, the underside is a soft felt, and it comes with a 360 mic, some plugs for the 7th and 8th buttons, and a cleaning cloth. and it sure is one of the best looking things my eyes have ever taken a gander at.
i later owned some friends. really hard. they were pretty darn jealous of my Eightarc Fusion Synthesis fight stick. which i spent 200 goddarn us dollars on, and i don't regret it one bit.

i had until now 3 different sticks and this one is the best by far. Nice design, smooth handling. This thing is all you ever need.

I am fighting video game player for 15 years, and have always been very demanding in terms of gaming devices. Unfortunately in Colombia there are no good parts and was to settle those who had here. Nearly six months ago I brought a Fusion synthesis, and is really great, not only for its design but also for its precision with performance and playtime. I must say that whenever I played without restrictors in the joysticks, and at the start cost me a bit, but after you get used to it until more confiable.Ya am saving to have another joystick, hope to have it for next year.
Thanks and regards
