pushbuttons
« on: September 27, 2013, 09:50:55 am »
hi all,
I'm looking for *good* pushbuttons and joystick and I wonder if you could suggest some shop.
I've seen ultimarc, which seems to have what I like: the MagStickPlus looks great (and I got very positive reviews) as well as the goldleaf pushbuttons (they seem solid, silent, and pleasant to use, are they?)
But taxes and shipping costs  (I'm in Germany) are a little high.

I also saw the german arcadeshop.de, but I have no idea about the quality of the items. I've got the feeling that Sanwa buttons feel like cheap plastik, so I'd go for the longleaf buttons or for the Pushbutton SL-CV series.
Does anyone have experience with any of these?

very important: I'm looking for something that *feels good*, solid, silent, heavy! Nothing that gives you a cheap, empty-plastic, empty-clicky, weak  feeling.

Thanks all
AC

Although I'd prefer the concave buttons...
