How finicky is the pro controller as a second player option?

I'm picking up a pro controller today so I can play 4 player Mario Kart. The four player set up would be Game Pad, Pro Controller, 2 wiimotes.

I know with the wiimotes it takes a bit of time since they always want to play the sync game but I haven't heard much about using both a Gamepad and pro controller on the same console as layer one and two. Just curious really. I'm going to be browsing the board as I wait for questions since I really don't know much about it and wanted to get some input from those who have hands on experience.

I know what you are talking about with the Wiimotes not wanting to sync, I have never had that problem with any of my Pro Controllers.

I like the Pro Controller so much that I own four of them. I can say that they work great and have never given me any trouble, they don't take as long as the Wiimotes to sync to the console and will be a much better option for any company you may have over.

I have no problem syncing the Pro controller. The battery life is also excellent, so you won't ever have to worry about charging it after a single play session, unlike the gamepad.
Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady.

Alright thank you. I'm convinced. I'll pick one up today.

Who the hell says finicky nowadays? LOL. Anyway the Pro Controller is really awesome; you only need to sync up once and it'll work perfectly. It's also extreme comfortable and familiar if you've played with similarly designed controllers before. I prefer it when playing MK8 or NBA 2K13.
