This joystick requires 4.8mm crimped wires for connection.
This joystick has 4 x microswitches fitted with 4.8mm terminals.
Each microswitch will require 1 x 4.8mm ground connection and 1 x wire 4.8mm for signal connection.
For the ground connections, you can use the daisy chain ground harness 4.8mm. The grounds connect to the CO (common ground) terminals and the signal wires connect to the NO (normally open) terminals.
Pre-crimped wires and daisy chain harnesses can be purchased separately here:
Wires & Cables
Many fighting game fanatics favour the JLF likely after getting used to the higher end console fight sticks, but it's s little too 'soft' for use in an arcade machine. The JLW is a little clickier and slightly stiffer, not through poorer quality but for sturdiness. This stick takes way more abuse than the JLF does whilst feeling very similarly, and should last a lot longer in an arcade cabinet too. Definitely the best Sanwa in my opinion and cheaper than JLF's too.
