Product Description

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.

To connect the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT joystick to a Venom PS4 fight stick, you will require the JST-XH Female To Female Connector Cable

Sanwa JLF Joystick Product Codes Explained
There is often some confusion with the product codes for Sanwa joysticks and we often get asked to explain/help with the different codes. To try and explain the product codes, please see below. We hope this information helps and makes the different models of joystick easier to understand.

  1. Great parts to Pro standard your stick

    Posted by Viperx220 on 14th Apr 2016

    I was looking for pro parts to uptake my venom fight stick, these Sanwa parts are the perfect replacements. Much more responsive than standard and well worth the cost of upgrade. You will not be disappointed

  2. Strong choice for any arcade stick

    Posted by Tom Piddock on 15th Mar 2016

    The stick is responsive and a very good quality build (as you would hope to expect from Sanwa). If you are looking to replace your joystick then this is a very strong choice if not one of the best. It uses responsive micro-switches which click clearly on engaging, it has an option of colours so customising to your taste is easy and installation is quick and easy with the multiple screw holes in the mounting plate to choose from.

    You can use this stick as a replacement or in building from scratch. I installed this into a custom stick made of wood and the plate fixture kept it sturdy in place.

    On top of this the service was quick and the package was well cared for during delivery.

  3. Great stick for fighters

    Posted by Richie H on 30th Jan 2016

    Got this stick to replace the one on the Venom Arcade stick. Please note that the PCB inside takes the 5-pin JST-XH Female To Female Connector Cable and NOT the one that goes along with this stick from the drop down menu.

  5. Just Buy This One!

    Posted by Richie on 19th Nov 2015

    If you're playing Street Fighter or King of Fighters or any other fast paced beat em up just save yourself the hassle and buy this joystick, it's solid and fast, plenty of quality for the money, you won't regret it.
