Reading a lot I decided to purchase the LS-40 as I wanted the most similar experience to the original Neo-Geo arcade machines. I'm pretty pleased with it.
it's my first joystick so I guess I can't really judge it properly, but it feels good to me
Got this to try it out. It feels exactly the same as the LS32 apart from one thing: it doesn't have the pivot hop (the pivot bounces when riding the gate). This is one of the worst features of the LS32 for me so I was pleasantly suprised that the LS40 doesn't have it. I believe they've stopped making the LS40 in favor of the LS32.
This joystick is perfect for my mame cabinet. Feels lighter to use and more responsive than the sanwa i have in my raspberry pi 2 cabinet.Quality feel all round.
