Default S3 vs S6 faders?

What's the difference between these two in terms of faders?

Totally different league. The S3 is more like the Artist series quality...

S3 is solid, and faders very good! And I've used Artist Mix and the other Artist stuff for years.
S3 is in another league.
In my studio we use it for both music- and post production.

I don't know the S6, but I do know the Artist series and I recently bought the S3: the S3 faders are way better than the Artist series!! They feel very solid and comfortable!

But unfortunately no where like the S6. Those are so smooth with perfect resistance.
