I wanted something a little different from the base design and wanted to keep the 30mm buttons but swap out the movement buttons for a WASD layout. They offered adjustments and customization to meet all my needs. Customer service was very helpful and they worked with me to get the design just right. I had a small fitment issue with the WASD PCB during assembly and they modified the design and shipped it to me really quickly. I've been using it for 3 months now and I'm very happy. If you're looking for an acrylic case, look no further.

Perfect little case, still working on the final details but a great compact tournament case works wonders for me.

Best custom stick enclosure I've ever had. Precision cut. Gorgeous and sturdy. Easy instructions. Super helpful with getting me templates for both top and side panels so I could design custom graphics and they can even print them for me. Just a fantastic experience.

Easy to assemble, perfect size for my requirements, has a nice sturdy feel. Looking forward to using this a lot more. Even if you get a coloured case, I recommend the clear top so you can print off and put your own art in!

This enclosure has exceeded expectations in terms of value for the money I paid for it. When I decide if I actually like stickless controllers and want to step up to a larger form factor I will for sure be coming back here to get it.

Extremely simple to put together (once you know how to rotate the cutouts), and response to inquiries was extremely quick. I prefer the matte finish to avoid smudges, but the clear is nice to see the wiring inside.
This was my first time building any kind of arcade controller. I was looking for an enclosure with all of the necessary components included with the order as well. Emailing Eternal Rival I received a prompt reply with a list of the components I would need to order for a successful build. Got my order fairly promptly, there was a small issue with it which was rectified very quickly. Not a huge deal since I live nearby meaning shipping was fast and I spread my build out over a few days. At first I was surprised at how lightweight everything was, but once assembled actually feels like it has a decent amount of heft. It's not as solid as metal etc. but fine plus lighter weight makes it easier to carry and store. I think they sell plates to put on the bottom to make it heavier if you want.
So, going into the assembly process. Instructions were included which were quite helpful, however it referenced instructions for hooking up the Brook board to components and said they were included but they were not. Was able to download those from Brook's website. Even as a reasonably technical person, it was a bit daunting to figure out which wire was supposed to go where but figured it out in reasonable time. The main thing is that each button has a voltage input plus one ground. Knowing this up front makes it much easier to complete the build. Overall things went together smoothly and I tested the stick at each milestone (when the direction buttons are wired, the punches, then the kicks, then the start/select/etc). One comment is some of the grammar in the instructions was barely comprehensible. No issues with typos etc. but a review on some of them might be a good idea.
I'm pretty happy with my stick in the end. Being able to customize the look is great and worth the effort. It might be nice if when you order the enclosure there were drop downs to add all of the necessary components so an email is not required, this might help the owner get more sales in this day and age of instant one cart shopping.
Took me a while to get it all put together, but I couldn't be happier with the case. Assembly takes a while, but rewiring on changing buttons becomes a lot easier with the way the panels fix together. Got my art printed through them as well, and the quality is fantastic. Will 100% be going through them again for a case in the future.
As my first Fight stick really happy how this turned out, not many options I've seen for a hybrid and this is great so far. Very helpful getting everything I needed to make it happen. Only real issue with this case is I wished the bottom window provided a bit more support to the walls when taking it apart but overall it is pretty minor problem.
Recommend if you would like a hybrid.
