more likely cheaper to produce rather than improved!
Yeah I got a CG2 in the mail today from amazon, everything about it feels lower quality.
The thumbstick grips are terrible on the new CG2 generation ones, or at least on the one I bought. The left stick was acceptable but the right stick felt like a worn out one when it came brand new, that's ridiculous. To make things worse, the rubber formula must have changed because it feels more slippery then grippy, as if it has more plastic in the mix then rubber.
This board is better for adding buttons then the CG that's for sure, at least you don't have to sneak wires under the button mat or cut away from the rubber of the mat like I had to do on the CG. Maybe there was a way around that but either way this one's easier besides the need to make a switched power supply for LEDs and stuff.
