Anybody test out the 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro yet? Is it the cat's knees and the bee's pajamas? How does it stack up to the original Circle Pad Pro?

For a certain set of Japanese gamers, the stock devices are hella weaksauce. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demands the most streamlined controls possible, but Nintendo's offerings don't meet their specialized needs. A few resourceful individuals have decided to "build a better mousetrap" for improved comfort and button placement. Some units have the stick up on the shoulder, while others slap both the stick and an extra D-pad on the rear!

The mods in the gallery below are but a sample of these hardcore hunters' fruits. Are there any you wouldn't mind trying out for yourself?

This Monster Hunter sword can be yours for 60,000 Zeni!
