This joystick is a classic and is a popular choice especially for fighting games.
It comes as standard with a clip on gate. The gate can be removed and then re-configured from 4way diamond to 8way square, and clipped back on. We also make different gates for this joystick.
The gate swap is tool-less and can be quite quick. We use the -01 version of the joystick with the switches mounted on a pcb rather than individual switches, so that switches don't fall out during gate swap.
This is Sanwa's main joystick product now. There are also some good clones that we may or may not offer as a slightly cheaper alternative.
We also have some stock of the FLASH 1 optical PCB.
We use a custom S-plate to mount this joystick deep in the wood panel (it is designed for metal panel mounting ).
