So I am currently looking at the SFV TE S+ Stick from Madcatz, costs £80 which is a considerably lower price than when it released and as I understand is roughly comparable to the SF TE1 stick.

Built with Sanwa parts as stock and generally well reviewed - stick men (and women), would this be a good stick? Anyone with experience of it?

I'd look into a stick that you can swap parts out easily. TE2+ would be ideal, though if you can afford it - the Qanba Dragon is the best. It's huge but it's well worth the money, IMO.

What do you think about the Razer Panthera? I've been thinking of getting one.

Prefer the pad. Don't really have anywhere to set the stick while playing, ya know? Other than my lap I guess.

I have the original Mad Catz TES, along with a TE2.

The TES isn't a bad stick. It's just not as convenient to mod as the te2.

The TE2 has a hinged top like the Razer panthera, which makes opening the case to mod super easy.

The TES requires you to unbolt the top panel with a hez key.

As far as swapping parts (button and joystick) they're both the same, and they both come with the exact same parts as stock on both sticks. So quality is the same.

Where you are going to run into issues on the TES, is if you plan on installing a multi console pcb board, like a Brooks universal fighting board or a ps360+. The USB cable is permanently attached to the board and simply snaked out a small hole. The case is so compactly designed that it's a pain to install a nuetrik jack to replace it.

With the tE2, you can use a Jansen ez mod board, which makes it a breeze to rewire the Mad Catz MLG pro adapter.

Sanwa sticks are fine. Would never need to mod unless you have some specific preference. If you’re new to sticks, this is the standard so might as well get used to it.

I’ve heard ppl modding for an octagon gate which doesn’t make sense. Don’t fall into that bs. Octagons are for shootemups and defeat the purpose of using a stick in fighting games. Sticks are good for quick inputs which square gates are perfect for.

Pads are fine for this game, but I would use a fighting pad. You can tell they designed the game with pad players in mind.

I would say anyone that is absolutely serious about getting a fight stick, to just splurge and get a quality stick right off the bat (~$150 for something like a Hori RAP). They are considerably easier to both mod and maintain than the entry level $70 fightsticks.

I disagree. Learning to play on a stick is TOUGH. You have to relearn how to play fighting games all over again and that can be discouraging. I know people decide to learn stick, buy one then abandon it when they don't want to learn to use it.

I recommend starting out with a cheap stick first to see if you even have the baseline dedication to learn the instrument. Why sink $200 in a gaming peripheral that you use three times then shove in your closet never to see the light of day again? At least if you compromise and only spend $50 or $70 it isn't as big of a money sink.

I'm not gonna lie, pretty much the main reason I got this is because I haven't played a fighting game in forever and all the talk was about how this one was easy to get into (well, and it looks awesome). So if anyone was upset about how they tailored the game to filthy casuals, I'm one of said filthy casuals :p (although I'm assuming there's a high skill ceiling to match the low floor)
