The Seimitsu LS-32-01-SC joystick is identical to the Seimitsu LS-32-01 model but has a black shaft cover fitted by default. This joystick is ideal for those customers who don’t want the silver shaft of the joystick showing and prefer the black shaft cover instead. The LS-32-01-SC joystick is a serious competitor to the Sanwa JLF series of joysticks and is actually preferred by some people, due to the fact it has a light spring pressure and short travel, making this a good choice for 2D beat 'em up and shoot ‘em up games. The Seimitsu LS-32-01-SC joystick comes fitted with a stepped SS mounting plate, dust cover, black shaft cover, 35mm ball top handle in a choice of colour and also features a 2-4-8 way adjustable gate.

I am now using these as a standard stick with the octo restrictors instead of the Sanwa JLF's.
They just feel and respond so good!
Top quality stick highly recommend!

Got this to replace the Hori stick in my Hori N Hayabusa and also used a classic Sanwa, always with octagonal gates. I've changed springs on both of these sticks but never got them to feel right. This stick feels right without any mod except the Kowal octagonal gate. The little extra tension compared to the standard Sanwa was just what I was looking for.

Installed in a Hori Hayabusa RAP N, the original mounting screws unfortunately wouldn't quite fit with this but after some searching online I found it was possible to swap them round with two of the Seimitsu screws from the bottom of the stick (I think it was the ones holding the gate in place).
As for the stick itself, I bought this mainly to play shootemups, and although I liked the Hayabusa this definitely feels more "nimble", it's easier to quickly change direction and has more of a gliding feel when you move round the corners.
