    okay stick

    Posted by kev on 12th Jun 2017

    Bought for my first diy fight stick along with a zero delay unit. the microswitch terminals on the stick are 4.8mm which is a bugger because I ordered the 2.8mm option with the zero delay PCB as that's what my buttons were, no bother just 5 mins with a crimping tool and correct size spades apart from this little hiccuping I am quite happy with the performance of the stick!

    Nice cheaper alternative

    Posted by Dave Drury on 25th Oct 2014

    In the past ive always bought Sanwa arcade sticks, but thought id give this one a try as its a nicer price.

    Upon arrival they looks very much like a sanwa stick.

    Fitted a pair into my cabinet, but noticed straight away that they felt a bit sticky/too much friction, and didnt always fully return to the centre when releasing the stick.

    I removed the shaft and actuators, gave them a bit of white grease, then rebuilt them. It has completely transformed them and they feel great to use. I would happily use them again instead of the Sanwa sticks

    A good ball-top stick for those on a budget

    Posted by Chris Chadwick on 15th Jun 2014

    Basically, this is a cheap Sanwa JLW-TM-8 clone. As such, the build quality isn't 5 star: I had to tighten all the screws and sand off a nub of spare plastic on top of the stick (with very fine sandpaper!). There's also a slight moulding 'rim' running all the way around the the ball handle.

    For some reason, the underside of the dust cover is textured. Thus, I found it a bit noisy when it was sliding across the textured surface of my laminated control panel. I simply put a sticky label on the underside - cut to shape - and this solved the issue.

    There's also slight play in the dead zone (small movement in the stick before a microswitch is pressed). I also had to replace the supplied, square restrictor gate with a round one, as I simply couldn't play with it - but that may just be me.

    However, in use, I really can't fault this stick, especially at this price. I bought 2 and beat my Robotron hi score, first go. Nuff said. :)
