The Sanwa Silent JLF-TPRG-8BYT-SK (Version B) joystick features Omron branded D2RV-G-SD3 microswitches, which have high tension springs inside, which translates to a stiffer feel during movement and a faster return to neutral. This (Version B) Sanwa silent joystick features a dedicated 8-way square restrictor gate in a striking blue colour. The restrictor gate on this silent Sanwa joystick is moulded in one piece and does not have the centre piece that can be turned for 4-way, unlike the restrictor gate on a standard Sanwa JLF joystick.
Sanwa Denshi Co. are renowned for manufacturing high quality arcade parts and this Sanwa silent joystick is no exception. This joystick is fitted with Omron microswitches that are virtually inaudible and have increased tension in the stiffer springs, compared to Sanwa's other joysticks.
The Sanwa silent JLF-TPRG-8BYT-SK joystick is available in a choice of colours and customers can choose the colour of the ball top handle at the time of order. Each joystick also comes supplied with a JLF-CD black shaft cover set and a 35mm ball top handle.

Truly silent joystick, coupled with a 2lb spring for quicker centering, this just feels great. Honestly contemplating a circle restrictor gate to take my arcade stick to the next level of quiet.
Bought this to replace the stock stick, and couldn't be happier. Great build quality and practically silent, no clicks.
Didn't like this for USFIV, had a hard time hitting combos with this. So I went back to my old SANWA-JLF-TP-8YT. I would use this stick if I didn't play USFIV, because it was great for my other arcade games.
I bought these to replace my standard Sanwa joysticks (which are top quality). But these are just superb. I also added the octagon gateway and stiffer spring and the difference is night and day. Much better control and less “clicky”. If you put all the effort into building your own cab you should definitely buy these!
Just what you are looking for if you want a silent tournament stick, I’ve matched mine with silent OBSF 30 buttons and got just what I wanted. It’s pricey compared to a standard JLF but worth it if you want that pro feel. The tension is very similar to the standard TP-MA. I’ll probably move the switches & gate over to my OTTO V2 kit to give it that more constant feel. I matched it up with a Phreakmods Link shaft at the same time of fitted and it’s turned out great. Super speedy service as usual from ArcadeWorld. 10/10 from me ;)
I replaced joystick in hori RAP v5 xbox/pc version. It is 20 min max job and it works out of box. I personally prefer this joystick to hori original one. I also added 30MM FOAM WASHER SILENCER FOR SANWA/SEIMITSU BUTTONS to 8 main buttons (available from arcadeworld). Noise level now it equivalent to drumming fingers on desktop. I play Tekken on both PC/XBOX. I could not play in same room when somebody else watch TV etc. Now it is not issue. Really like new setup. I like arcadeworld services.
This joystick offers the same (if not better) quality I've come to expect from Sanwa joysticks but without audio feedback from the switches. If you're used to noisier joysticks this will take some getting used to. The blue one piece gate also gives an edge over the standard JLF as there is no chance of the insert moving slightly due to wear and tear. If you're looking for a replacement joystick with a silent edge, I would definitely recommend this joystick.
