    1. More tension/resistance

      Bought these to replace the stock springs on my Arcade1Up SF2 Cab. Definite improvement to the stick feeling too loose for my liking. The resistance makes it feel like it won’t break as easy. I am able to pull off moves better. on Oct 31st 2019

    2. Just like the old days

      It fit in my stick with no problem and made it tighter reminds me of the old school arcades on Oct 23rd 2019

    3. Perfect upgrade

      These worked great to add to Hori Hayabusa Joystick. Would recommend for anyone wanting the Arcade at home real feel. on Oct 22nd 2019

    4. Great for Arcade1up!!!

      I added these to all my arcade1up cabs, stock and upgraded joysticks! These are a must if you want a more professional feel during gameplay. HUGE DIFFERENCE!!! on Oct 6th 2019

    5. Great product!!

      Replaced the springs in the arcade 1up MKII joysticks with these. They are nice and tight now and very responsive. on Oct 5th 2019

    6. Spring Tension

      These 4lb springs make a huge difference. They make the stock arcade1up joysticks feel like much better quality. on Oct 2nd 2019

    7. A must for arcade1up cabinets

      I have been modding arcade1up Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat cabinets for about six months and although they look awesome and they are fantastic functionally, the joysticks, even after you take The Originals out and put in new ones just feel loose and sloppy. This is a very inexpensive 3 minute upgrade you can do that dramatically improves the joysticks. on Oct 2nd 2019

    8. Simple but effective

      I bought these specifically for some JLF Sanwa joysticks I had installed in my Arcade1Up Street Fighter II cabinet. The stock joysticks were far from adequate and the stock 2lb springs in the Sanwa JLF joysticks just didn't have enough resistance for my taste and would spin. Installing the springs was easy enough and adds enough tension that they almost "spring" back to center and feel like more traditional "American" joysticks. All around I'm impressed and will easily pick these up for any future JLF joysticks that I purchase. on Sep 10th 2019

    9. Better choice for JLF

      The stock spring on japanese levers tend to loose tension pretty quick using this or teh 2lb spring will help with your execution on Sep 4th 2019

    10. Extreme tension

      Installed on a hayabusa stick (Hori Rap V), is a great spring but 4lbs is too much for a normal fightstick (~2.2 Kg), maybe work fine in an arcade machine or more heavy size fightstick. on Aug 29th 2019
