The Euro joystick is a high quality joystick, manufactured in the EU by IL. This 8-way joystick is similar to the ones used in original Mortal Kombat arcade cabinets. This joystick has a light spring pressure, medium travel and is fitted with soft clicking Cherry microswitches and a white actuator. This joystick has a tear drop style handle with matching coloured dust cover. This joystick is very soft clicking, due to the light actuation force of the quality Cherry microswitches and in our opinion, is one of the best joysticks to use for an arcade project.
* The IL Eurostick has dedicated 8-way movement
* Similar to Mortal Kombat cabinet joysticks
* Soft clicking Cherry microswitches - low actuation force
* Microswitches with 4.8mm terminals
This joystick is fitted with 4 x 4.8mm Cherry Microswitches. Each microswitch will require 1 x crimped wire for ground connection and 1 x crimped wire for signal connection.
Pre-crimped wires and daisy chain ground harness can be purchased separately here:

Upgraded my Mortal Kombat Tournament Stick with this lever. It's amazing, it feels and performs so much better than the SuzoHapp Competition!
If you want the authentic arcade feeling then you gotta have the American battops. But to be honest I don't use these and uses the Sanwa JLW on my cab instead.
Since the suzo happ has bad diagonals this is the one and only American joystick to get if you want the authentic western arcade feel.
Using this for along time highly Recommended
Upgraded from a generic Chinese set used for me first every Cabinet build. These are a thousand times better. Takes it from almost a toy version to feeling like a proper arcade from my youth. Love em. If you have kids like I do, no way they can break these very robust in comparison. Wish I knew the difference day one!
The original joystick that came with all 90s Midway cabinets!
One of the best cannot recommend this stick enough
I remember when I used to spend all my pocket money on the arcade machines. I buit myself a arcade stick for my PC. I tried a japaneese joystick (Sanwa) at a friends house, that one didn't feel right to me., I didn't get the right feeling. He told me to try a IL or a Happ joystick, I went for the IL one. The IL joystick felt right, it feels like the joysticks I remember from the arcade halls when I was a kid. So if you like me, grew up spending your pocket money on arcades when you were a kid, this joystick is the one for you.
I used to have the Happ competitions but Andy from Arcade world said to get the IL. So glad I did, much tighter response, utterly brilliant. Thanks Andy
There were recommended but I almost purchased the slightly cheaper HAPP ones. So glad I purchased these, they are lovely to use and operate, very smooth and work great!
Very nice, sturdy quality ! Gotta remove the E-clip in order to mount it on a control panel.
I bough two of these sticks and while they are both very good one of them feels just slightly better than the other. Typically I installed that on the player 2 position before checking. Its possible its my bad playing but I have better control of moves in fighting games using the second stick than the first. The first stick just seems to catch accidental diagonals more than the other. That said I would definitely buy these sticks again. They can take a real beating which will be perfect when I finally get around to installing them into a custom cabinet.
