Introducing the Panzer Fight Stick Aluminum
The fourth Panzer Fight Stick is the culmination of 6 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 lightest Panzer Fight Stick ever created. It features: the OG's size, the Widebody's Plexi Top (optional), the Korean Edition's Feet, and an all aluminum build to cut the case's weight to only 2.5lbs!
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 Fight Stick Aluminum allows you to use START, SELECT, HOME, TOUCHPAD CLICK, L3, and R3 (or any other buttons you want). Additionally, using the optional but highly recommended Cherry toggle switches (no holes this way) you can shift your lever to Left Analog Stick Mode, Right Analog Stick Mode, or Direction Pad Mode with ease. You can wire the inside of the case how you see fit and make the toggle switches do anything you can think up!
Taito Vewlix Influenced Layout. Today's mass marketed fight sticks all use the same Vewlix inspired layout, its popular and favored by many. Years ago I let the mass produced sticks focus on the Vewlix layout and shifted to the Sega Candy Cab layout for the Panzer Fight Stick 3 and 3i. The Panzer Fight Stick Aluminum brings back the Vewlix layout to the Panzer Fight Stick giving you even more options.
Strong, yet Light. Each Panzer Fight Stick Aluminum is constructed with .081" thick 5052 Aluminum and then powder coated. This ensures that the stick is sturdy and the finish is scratch resistant offering years quality use. Aluminum is significantly lighter than the Cold Rold Steel used in the Panzer Fight Stick 3 allowing it to be 25% of the weight at only 2.5lbs. Additionally, aluminum 5052 has a high strength and greater corrosion resistance (including to salt water) than Steel while maintaining great finishing characteristics.

Get a Brook Universal Fighting Board.
Everyone has a PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, or XBOX ONE! If you have one you bet your buddy has the other. Why would you want a stick that only works on one or the other? Don't give up your home field advantage by using someone else's gear. I wanted a stick that could work on everything possible, hence the Panzer series was designed around the Brook Universal Fighting Board, the PS4+ Board, Retro Board, and the PS360+ as the brain for console and PC gaming; all are proven piecse of tech that the community adores. You can order your Brook Universal Fighting Board with the kit and it will come with all headers pre-soldered!
