    3. Worked Great!

      Took a bit to get to Canada but if you aren't in a rush these are great!

      I used them for my Mortal Kombat arcade1up and it feels like a real cabinet now. Only thing I regret is that for $9USD for shipping, I didn't grab 2 more for my Pacman and Galaga cabs!

    4. Doable.

      Bought this because 2lb tension spring was sold out. Doable.. guaranteed to make them forearms grow for sure. waiting for 2lb version to be available.. on Mar 11th 2020

    5. hreat tension

      got just what i hoped on Feb 17th 2020

    6. Perfect replacement

      Worked as expected. Made the joystick much more responsive and not as sloppy on Feb 10th 2020

    7. Great in Arcade 1up

      I used a pair of these springs to replace the stock that came on my Mortal Kombat Arcade 1up machine. The sticks feel so much better and not flimsy. The change took about 10 minutes. on Jan 3rd 2020

    8. Great product arrived quickly!

      Needed a 4lb spring to upgrade my arcade 1up sticks and these arrived quickly and worked perfect for my upgrade! on Dec 17th 2019

    9. Just what my sticks needed

      These springs added the much needed tension to my arcade sticks. Not sure what I replaced but the stiffness on my stick now is incredible. Also they were easy to install and shipped fast! on Dec 11th 2019

    10. Must have upgrade for Arcade1up machines!

      I was contemplating upgrading my Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and Marvel Super Hero joysticks to Sanwa sticks. Didnt really want to spend the money so i decided to give new springs a try. It was an immediate impact. The joystick back more responsive and performing moves was easier. It was such an improvement I bought springs for my remaining 6 cabinets. Highly recommended. on Dec 9th 2019
