Case Features. The third Panzer Fight Stick (improved) is the culmination of 5 years of Fight Stick design and inputs from the community. I have taken elements from every iteration of the Panzer lineup and incorporated them into the perfect Panzer Fight Stick. It features: the OG's size, the Widebody's Plexi Top, the Korean Edition's Feet, the 2.0's EZ BUILD ("System of Systems") concept, the new UNITY MOUNTING system, and a few new features.
More Auxiliary Functions. When coupled with the Brook Universal Fighting Board, your fight stick build is usually limited due to not having enough buttons or cutouts. The Panzer 3 allow you to use START, SELECT, HOME, TOUCHPAD CLICK, L3, and R3. Additionally, using the Cherry toggle switch you can shift your lever to Left Analog Stick Mode, Right Analog Stick Mode, or Direction Pad Mode with ease.
Front Button Lock. All Panzer Fight Stick 3i's feature an included Cherry toggle switch that disables or "locks" the front buttons. This MECHANICAL kill switch prevents accidental bumps or presses that can cause you to lose a match. In my opinion, this is the best way to disable those buttons as the software enabled locks used by most Fight Sticks can fail. The front panel lock can lock out the LS/RS/DP mode switch as well by setting the internal switch to the appropriate position.
Wide Sega Candy Cabinet Influenced Layout. Today's mass marketed fight sticks all use the same Vewlix inspired layout. It's not ergonomic and can make deadly match ending combos unattainable. The curved feel of the 2P layout on Sega's Candy Cabinets makes all buttons easier to hit due to them matching the natural curve of your fingers. Additionally, the lever is spaced to 95mm instead of the usual 59mm since you don't have to share space with a friend sitting right next to you at a cabinet. Clearly Modified for the left handed approach used on the southpaw layout
Strength. Each Panzer Fight Stick 3i is constructed with 14 gauge cold rolled steel and then powder coated. This ensures that the stick is sturdy and the finish is scratch resistant offering years quality use.

Ready to add artwork to your build? All of the Photoshop Templates can be found at the link below. We've partnered up with Szabo's Arcades to do prints in a variety of options for all of our sticks and panels. We also do regular runs of printed plexi (reverse printed, directly to the plexi) for the Panzer Fight Stick and many of our 1/16" thick plexi arcade stick replacement panels.
