Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Ball Top Joystick
The Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT is a high quality joystick, manufactured in Japan by Sanwa Denshi Co. This is the joystick of choice for fighting game enthusiasts, especially Street Fighter fanatics. Widely used in MadCatz & QanBa fight sticks and many Japanese arcade machines. Each joystick comes complete with a flat mounting plate, 2 x dust covers, TP-MA board with soldered microswitches & a 35mm ball top handle. This joystick features light spring pressure but can easily be modified if you prefer a stiffer feel, by adding a different spring, such as a Seimitsu LS-55 spring.
By default, this joystick has a square restrictor gate and is set to 8 way. This can easily be changed to 4 way mode by simply removing the plastic restrictor, lifting the centre piece and rotating it to the 4 way position. We also sell the Sanwa GT Y Octagonal Gate if you prefer more precise 8 way control for games like Street Fighter, which will allow you to pull off combo moves with ease.
Compatible Restrictor Gates:
Sanwa GT Y Octagonal Gate
Sanwa GT 2F 2 Way Restrictor
QanBa Octagonal Restrictor Gate
QanBa Round Restrictor Gate
Mounting Plate Dimensions:
* High quality Japanese joystick
* Switchable 4 and 8 way square restrictor
* Perfect for fighting games
* Includes 35mm LB-35 ball top handle

If you want the best improvement to those cheaper models of arcade sticks that come with average joysticks, look no further than the Sanwa JLF. Easy to fit, flows with your movements and makes fighting games and shoot 'em ups all the more pleasurable.

Perfect for beat em ups a-la-streetfighter.
Smooth action throughout 360°. The switches are noticeable, but light enough not to become irritating. The proof with this stick is the accuracy in which I can perform quarter and half rotations.
