Perfect combination of tightness and precision for my taste. If you want lighter and smoother action, go for LS-40, those are still not as sloppy as original Sanwa JLF.
I'm new at the joystick thing, and this is my first joystick for a mame/emulator box, I find the spring too light. And unfortunately the springs i tried that mentioned the ls-32 didn't fit. But that does not make it a bad joystick! I like the small-ish deadzone, and the rest of it feels fine. :)
I have just replaced my aging but still in good condition Seimitsu Latest Version LS-32-01 Arcade Joystick with this SEIMITSU LATEST VERSION LS-32 ARCADE JOYSTICK (AKA LS-300) into my Madcatz TE Fight Stick. It needs a crown Harness to wire up the stick, It feels very precise and very tight and has a good return to middle. I play hori and vert shooters so this kind of stick is a must in my opinion. Andy from AW was great in giving me advice about which stick to get, he wasn't wrong. I would without doubt recommend this stick for shooters (cave shooters on the 360) and recommend you all use Arcade World for all you needs, they are great to just pick up the phone and to talk too. Thanks again Andy@ Arcade World
good quality product
Joystick amazing but only 4 star because 1 joy he came little broken, can not be screwed into spheres due to the broken thread, the rest is working fine Shipping Express thx.
I use this Joystick for shoot'em up games, it's excellent for that purpose.
Seems like a very nice joystick, but the balltop is just a Little to big, given it is a short travel joystick, but luckily that can be changed.
