  • Product Description

    The 2lb tension spring for Sanwa JLF replaces the existing spring found in the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick, or Sanwa JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK Silent Microswitch Joystick, adding 1.1lb more force than the original. This results in a stiffer joystick, which is favored amongst some players who don't like the loose feel of the JLF. Using this spring, you no longer have to combine the original with a LS-32 to achieve the same level of tension.  

    Save when bundled with Sanwa JLF, FA Nippon ALU products 

    Now you can save 35 cents on the 2lb JLF spring when you bundle it with the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT JoystickSanwa JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK Silent Microswitch Joystick, Sanwa JLF-TP-8Y-SK Joystick (No Plate Installed) or FA Nippon ALU battops.  Just choose "Add 2lb JLF Tension Spring" from listing options.

    1. Great for Arcade1up

      Replaces the stock springs in my Marvel Super Heroes Special Edition with these and they feel great. Highly recommended. on Feb 4th 2020

    2. Just what my arcade needed!

      This spring made a good noticeable impact on the operation of my arcade controller. It is slightly stiffer, but not so much that it tires the players hand. I thought about the 4lb spring but opted to err on the cautious side and I'm glad that I did. I imagine 4lbs would feel 2x as heavy and that would be just too much for fighting games and the like.

      As always, great quality product and speedy shipping from FocusAttack. I'm very pleased and will (as always) remain a loyal customer! Thanks!

    3. Sanwa JLF 2 Pound Spring

      Great product. I use it in my JLF stick with an octogate. on Dec 30th 2019

    4. great upgrade for hyabusa stick

      i ordered a hori rap 4 pro for my first arcade stick ran it in stock form for a month and didnt like the very loose feel of the stick . after swapping the spring out for a 2lb spring and a brief trip to the training room i got allot more crisp inputs and when i released the stick from an input direction it didnt rebound everywhere it went straight back to neutral position. highly recommended on Dec 9th 2019

    5. Buy this spring

      I've been using this spring for a couple weeks now and can easily say it was a great decision to get this spring. The quick return to neutral helps a lot and without the stiff feeling of a 4lb spring. I paired this with a battop and would never go back to stock. Highly recommend that everyone get this. on Dec 7th 2019

    6. Better experience

      So much better than the stock light tension. Your inputs are cleaner and the neutral is faster. I would suggest to order the 4lb as well because overtime 2lb can feel as not enough. I eventually settled with 4lb for Sanwa. on Nov 27th 2019

    7. A must have upgrade

      The 2lb spring should be the standard. The stock spring is too soft in my opinion so I put these in every stick I have. Perfect for Sanwa jlf and Hori Hyabusa sticks. on Nov 20th 2019

    8. Much much better than stock spring

      I was looking for a more comfortable and stiff feel on my stick, it felt over sensitive with stock spring. This spring is great, and it made me feel more in control , almost no drops and the movements are precise. Sanwa should really consider shipping stock sticks with this springs and not 1.2 lbs. on Nov 14th 2019


      This tension spring is a bit more high tension than original spring so it's make your stick return to it position better than feather light stock spring. on Nov 5th 2019

    10. Perfect for people who don't like stock

      I bought this spring simply because the stock one in my Sanwa felt too loose as I'm a mechanic and a little heavy handed, I'm going to still check out the 4lb spring but so far this one is a definite upgrade, stick bounce back quicker and it doesn't have that loose feeling the original one the stick came with did. Highly recommended on Oct 24th 2019
