The Seimitsu LS-38 joystick is very similar to the popular Seimitsu LS-32 model but with one important difference - the thicker/stiffer spring. The LS-38 joystick is fitted with a thicker spring, which is stronger than the standard spring found in LS-32 joysticks. The stronger spring gives the LS-38 joystick a much stiffer feel and a quicker return to centre for the shaft of the joystick, which results in improved control during gameplay. The spring inside the LS-38 joystick is approx 1.5 to 2 times stronger than the standard springs and the LS-38 joystick is the perfect choice for those customers who prefer a joystick with a much stiffer feel and quicker return to centre.

There are 4 x microswitches fitted to this joystick with 4.8mm terminals. Each microswitch will require 1 x 4.8mm wire for ground connection and 1 x 4.8mm wire for signal connection. For the ground connections, you can use the daisy chain harness 4.8mm. Pre-crimped wires and daisy chain harness can be purchased separately here:

Great joystick. Bought it as the microswitches were sticking on one of my cab controllers. Very easy to fit and feels good to use. One note to be aware of (that I didn't read properly), the joystick is very short. If this is being mounted beneath 1/2" of wood, then the ball will barely clear the hole. I solved this mistake by swapping the shaft from my old joystick to this one. This joystick better suits cabs with a very thin piece of wood / plastic. Great product.
Great quality stick! I was worried it might be too stiff, but it's perfect. It's not particularly stiff compared to normal, but it feels more precise and the return to centre is nice and fast. I ordered one to try out and have now bought another to fit in my cabinet.
