    Excellent joystick.

    Posted by Chris on 20th Mar 2018

    As we all know Sanwa makes great products and with this joystick you can't go wrong either.
    Personaly I like this joystick with a 2lb tension spring, so if you can spare £ 0,99 test it out and judge yourself.
    When playing 4 and 8-way games on one cabinet and you don't want to swap the restrictor every time, than use a GT-Y restrictor to play 8 way games the best and 4-way games almost as good as with a restrictor set to 4-way mode.

    Fantastic joystick, perfect for shmups and fighters

    Posted by A on 14th Mar 2017

    The action is light and smooth, and it feels great for 8-way control. If you're playing something like Donkey Kong or Pengo that require fast and accurate 4-way control, then this is not the best choice, as it's much too easy to hit a diagonal. Of course, there is a separate plate to make it a 4-way controller, but not many people will be swapping frequently between the two.

    It's a great joystick though, and a thousand times better than the Zippee one I had installed previously.

    Don't scrimp on these

    Posted by Nick Spencer on 11th Mar 2016

    Building an arcade machine i scrimped the first time round on the joysticks. Playing SFII was very difficult diagonals were hard to hit. This Joystick is another level, diagonals are there when needed and combos are much easier to pull off. Highly recommend this joystick! Especially with the Sanwa GT-Y Octagonal Gate.

    Quality as expected

    Posted by Nick on 21st Feb 2016

    Went for these to play all games but mostly for fighters. The quality is what I've come to expect from Sanwa products - that is top notch. These lost a star however because they aren't suitable for Street Fighter due to it's stringent diagonals requirement. Upgraded with TP-MA boards (thank you Andy you are a legend) resolved this. Lesson learned - if you're playing particular games contact Arcade World UK for assistance and they'll make sure you have the correct kit!

    Very good

    Posted by John B on 10th Jun 2015

    ok I did something silly, I thought a cheap joystick would be fine on my home built arcade. It's only up,down,left and right,right? Why bother spending this much on a joystick? Having tried to play games on a cheap joystick your realise that there is a natural play were UP is not always 12 O'clock - it moves to 4 and then 5 minutes past then clock until you have to twist the handle back and they can be slow and clunky and generally spoil gameplay. So I spent a bit more and got this and what a difference!! I should have bought this from the start! It 'feels' professional -a gentle click not a gear-change! it is true- you really do get what you pay for! so much more professional. Just buy it!

    Great sturdy joystick

    Posted by CraigG on 13th Feb 2015

    I bought two of these for an arcade cabinet build, and I'm very impressed with the build quality. They're sturdy, look great, and are very responsive (with a satisfying click)/
