Brand : Industrias Lorenzo
- Calculated at Checkout
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:

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.
These are the type of Joysticks i grew up with, not the Sanwa round ones. I find the handle more ergonomic. They switches feel very soft and they work very well. It is an 8 way joystick so it is great for games like Street fighter and the like.
2 things to consider though:
- The nuts and bolts are not included so you'll to purchase them separately. You can find them under the "Illuminated Joysticks" section or get them in your local hardware store
- There are no setup instructions so in order to install the joystick onto the cabinet you'll need to remove the E clip underneath and handle, set up on to the control panel and then mount the stick again.
Love these sticks, have them on other machines and these have just reconfirmed how good theyre responsiveness and comfort is allowing hours of competitive gaming
High quality stick with a good spring action. Was a fan of the sanwa sticks but now i'm converted since using them in a cabinet project.
This IL stick is really great! I have put it in a homemade arcade control box and it works perfectly! Love the american style arcade stick and IL are one of the best quality brand since Happ is now with Suzo!
These are really well made and have a great weight to them, definitely a worthy purchase. I bought a set of white ones, considering getting the black also to mix it up ;)
However, buyer beware: These are not supplied with fitting bolts so get yourself down the hardware store! I have marked down for this reason as it really wouldn't take much to supply a generic set of nuts and bolts with these.
I got one of these babies to replace the stock controller on my X-Gaming Tankstick. It is much more responsive and worth the upgrade. Very easy to install too. The cherry microswitches are very quiet.
Great stick better then HAPP ultimate....i bought 1x happ black and 1x IL white ( same shape) play on IL plesure...waiting for black version to replace happ...l
