This joystick is a popular Japanese fighting stick.
It has a good positive centre position and is stiffer than the JLF as standard. However it still has quite a light action and we prefer to tune it up with slightly stiffer springs. It has levered switches which makes it naturally better suited for diagonals.
It comes as standard with a screw on square gate. We make different gates for this joystick but due to the screw on nature and the screws going directly into plastic, we only recommend this joystick to be used where the gate won't be changed ie a dedicated 8way or 4way stick. Read about joystick gates.
We use a custom S-plate to mount this joystick deep in the wood panel and hence give the correct ball height (it is designed for metal panel mounting).
