Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick With Fine Mesh Ball Top
The JLF-TP-8YT just got a whole lot cooler! This extremely popular joystick is now available to order with a sleek looking fine mesh ball top handle. The handle on this joystick is 35mm and features a tight, cool looking mesh pattern. For those customers who demand quality and style, this is it!
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 fine mesh 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.

I liked the design of the Joystick from the first time i got hand on this one.
Simple, easy to take apart, the 4/8 way switching mechanism needs some practice but i think it's a very nice Idea and it seems solid.
Playing with this one just feels perfect.
