    A bit too small

    Posted by Jarek on 24th Apr 2018

    Not a huge fan. I've had previous experience with octo gates on sanwa sticks and this one is a bit too small. let me elaborate:

    The limit of corner movements (bottom-left for example) is extremely close to the switch activation point. Basically you have to push your lever all the way to the "corner" for the move to register. For me personally it proved to be extremely difficult when doing quick QCF's. Switched back to square even though i definitely prefer octo gates and it fixed the issue.

    I also feel that the smooth corners don't feel "restricting" enough. It feels too round for my liking.

    Anyways, these are my 2 cents. Hope that helps

    Easy to install

    A easy to install, solid gate that works well with the Kowal 1mm Oversized Actuator and a 2lb spring.

    Does what is says on the box!

    It performs exactly as expected. It has improved my QCF/QCB movements a lot. I would recommend also getting a 2lb spring for the Hayabusa stick, as it feels kinda loose with the stock spring.

    Amazing Restrictor - Wonderful Work of Kowal

    Posted by Ulisses Medeiros on 15th Nov 2017

    the octagonal restrictor is essential for those who do not adapt to the square and improve inputs along with kowal actuator and spring 2lb or 4lb

    Bought this for my RAP and it works like a charm, you can really feel the movement of the stick.

    I like this one better than the default square gate

    Flawless

    Super easy to swap to and does exactly what it says on the tin.. Changes your hayabusa to an octagonal gate and I couldn't be more happy if I tried.

    Perfect for me!

    Like getting an entirely new stick! I got the Kowal 1mm oversize actuator and a pack of Sanwa mix 'n match buttons, (silent) so it's more or less a new stick anyway. With a 2lb spring added too, the HPAR V Kai now feels even better then my old stick.

    Very smooth octo' gate

    Posted by N3B on 23rd Jul 2017

    What can you say about essentially a piece of plastic? However this is well made gate with very smooth machining and no sharp edges. The points of the octangale are slightly smoothed out making 1/2 circle and 1/4 circle movements slick and easy. I did find this meant when I first used it I was missing my diagonals occasionally. Watch out Tekken players.
