  • 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. A necessityfor any stick player

      When I bought the removable JLF I got a free 2lb lever spring and decided to try it in my drone (my test stick basically). Turns out I liked it so much I bought another and put it in my Obsidian!

      Levers are usually very light to the touch and while easy to use I feel way more comfortable comfortable having that slight bit more pull on my stick (especially in games like tekken where going back to neutral can be a necessity)

      Id say the 4lb spring is super tense and highly unnecessary, but the 2lb feels very natural to the limp spring that comes standard.

    2. Great if you want a 2lb spring

      I bought this and a 4lb spring both installed easy both needed a bit of breaking in. Exactly what you would want out of a new spring on Apr 29th 2019

    3. A nice upgrade for a Hayabusa

      After being broken in a bit, this spring greatly increases the return to neutral speed and has only a marginal increase in effort for directional inputs. Tightening up the very loose basic hayabusa spring yields a much improved joystick feeling. on Mar 19th 2019

    4. Tight tight tight

      Feels like I have better control- not loosey goosey on Dec 12th 2018

    5. Great replacement for stock spring

      The original spring made my Sanwa JLF feel too loose, with this spring my stick feels just right. Would highly recommend if you are not a fan of loose feeling sticks. on Nov 28th 2018

    6. Used this on my Hoir RAP 4

      Easy install. Helped tighten up my movement. on Nov 2nd 2018

    7. Perfect resistance!

      I have a hurry rap4 and the stick was to loose for me so put the 2 pound scoring in there and now it's perfect. on Nov 1st 2018

    8. Works for my Qanba

      The spring allows my stick to return to center a so much better and tighter then my old spring which makes my inputs more fluid. Recommended if you feel your joystick is too loose for you on Sep 20th 2018

    9. Makes my JLF stronger!!

      I love this spring it allows my stick to return to center a little faster imo. Normal jlf feels loose compared to my preference. on Aug 30th 2018

    10. It works

      It works can’t complain on Jul 23rd 2018
