Ever since launch people have complained about the the imprecise and stiff nature of the Pro d-pads. The mechanics are sloppily designed and nothing like the traditional, quality ninty d-pad, for one it's really good at accidentally registering diagonals when a cardinal input is pressed.
I'm not even sure what's happened, Nintendo were the gold standard and the Pro pad has, objectively, the worst d-pad they've ever made. The Wii classic controllers had perfect d-pads, the Wii U gamepad had a really solid one too... and compared to those, the Switch pro feels stiff and wonky.
You might not notice the faults depending on which games you've played, but they're there.
