The Seimitsu octagonal gate is the perfect 8-way restrictor for you Seimitsu arcade joystick.
NOT compatible with LS-32 joystick
The Seimitsu octagonal gate will fit the following joysticks:
It's a great octagonal gate, but preferable (in my opinion) to the Sanwa sharp corners. I think this is b/c of the design of the Seimitsu LS joystick.
Wonderful for special moves and even going round around for circle specials as you can feel the positioning of the stick. I love Octagonal Gates.
This gate has a "soft" octagon, it is more "rounded" than that of Sanwa.
My perfect set up with LS-60.
you got what you see, good product, perfect fit.
The product is exactly what I was looking for.. Super fast shipping to Italy! Very satisfied
I ordered the Octagon Gate as a replacement for the Original Square Gate in my HORI Fighting Stick NEO II (NEO GEO AES). Anyone who owns a HORI NEO Stick I or II should install the Octagonal Gate, the feelling is much better than with the Original Square Gate!
Installed this on the LS-56.
This gate replaces the default square gate of the stick.
The octagonal gate makes hitting the cardinal directions safer with less accidental diagonals.
If you've been playing on a square gate it needs some getting used to, especially with cardinal to diagonal inputs (like d, d/f, SRK, wavedashing etc).
For half and quarter circles it makes your input faster and less prone to accidental input, as the stick "rides" the gate without bottoming out at the corner.
This is obviously a matter of preference, Mishima's in Tekken were harder for me with the octagonal gate, but for playing characters with lots of qcb/qcf (like Eliza), this was an improvement.
If you mess up half of your moves with a square gate like me you should pobably consider buying this gate. :)
Mounted on a Seimitsu LS58, this is the perfect combination for those who are poor in execution ! Shoryuken FADC to ultra has never been so easy ! :P
