I am aware model 2 is just the original japanese controller and is objectively better but I always liked the model 1 controller's blocky aesthetic.
Is it as bad as it looks when using?

The D-pad is weird and awkward

It's a matter of preference. I held a Model 1 controller a little over a year ago and ended up preferring it

I don't understand how ppl used the Model 1 dpad, It looks like it would grind off your thumb if you used it like the model 2 or genesis pad.

i have a model 1 controller, it's pretty comfy for me. the larger grips feel more natural to sit in my hands than my thinner bluetooth saturn controller. i dont have an actual model 2 to compare it to currently though.

the d pad on mine feels really good, and i like how the indentations feel. but i also have two 3D pads which have the more normal style d-pad and i like those as well. saturn just had great d-pads.

Have a pile of saturn pads and swapping the dpad out of a model1 is my favorite to use by far

Any difference in how the shoulders feel?

White Piggu controller reminds me of an evolution of the master race systems "mushy pad".

So does no one know the answer or what?

A little different. Same microswitch (very shallow) but the US model 1 pad has a ridge in the middle while the model 2 has a lip at the end to rest the finger on. The model 1 shape is a little odd as a whole where it depresses slightly in the middle and the switch doesn't feel as responsive. Posting pic in a sec.
