The New Seimitsu LS-32-01 latest version arcade joystick now features Omron microswitches instead of Panasonic microswitches and is very similar to the LS-32 model but has its microswitches soldered onto the PCB and connects via a 5-pin cable (H5P). The LS-32-01 joystick is a serious competitor to the Sanwa JLF series of joysticks and is actually preferred by some people, due to the fact it has a light spring pressure and short travel, making this a good choice for 2D beat 'em up and shoot ‘em up games. The Seimitsu LS-32-01 joystick comes fitted with a stepped SS mounting plate, dust cover, 35mm ball top handle in a choice of colour and also features a 2-4-8 way adjustable gate.
Mounting Plate Option:
Dimensions: Please refer to smaller thumbnail image above for datasheet

Short throw distance, tight spring, very responsive, matches my Razer Panthera fightstick, better than Sanwa JLF
Great stick for the Qanba Q4RAF

Excellent stick, and one of the 2 seimitsu sticks compatible with the Qanba Q4RAF (the other one is the LS-40-01). This stick as a short shaft (not as short as the one on the LS-62-01, unfortunately). I fixed the Kowal LS-32 Octopus restrictor, and it just perfect. The spring is stiffer than the one of the Sanwa JLF, it takes some time to get used to it, but you will gain in precision. My second prefered stick (the first is still the LS-62-01), I recommand this if you want to customize your Qanba Q4RAF.
Responsive and classy

After much research, I decided to go with this joystick for our arcade stick build as we predominantly play shmups. There's no doubt about it; it's a classy proposition. It's a beautifully engineered thing, and for this reviewer has the perfect amount of travel and a spot-on feel. A superb alternative to the all-conquering Sanwa JS-32, with a slightly lighter (but no less robust) feel.

Great joystick which feels a bit snappier than the usual Sanwa.
The stick was well-packaged and arrived pretty quickly. No complaints.
