Available in 10 delicious colors, the KDiT ALU Series aluminum battop is modeled after the high quality Sanwa LB-30 N-S battop. Fans of the battop now have additional choices to model their Fightstick or Arcade Cabinet. At 70 grams, the ALU battop is slightly heavier than the plastic equivalent, but still quite manageable. You can bundle our 2lb Tension Spring for Sanwa JLF to leverage the additional weight.
Your battop may come with a small metal washer. It is included to address a manufacturing issue with some older iterations of the ALU battop, depending on KDiT's production run.
The small metal washer included with each JLF-ALU Battop is designed to address a manufacturing deficiency with the product, which causes the battop to install lower than it should, and decrease movement of the JLF joystick.
Steps to install:
Place the metal washer atop the shaft of your JLF joystick.
Screw your battop adapter atop the washer.
Screw the battop onto the shaft and battop adapter
The heavy metal gives it more weight and better feel. I like this much more than the stock plastic on my Hori RAP N.Unknown

This was a big improvement over the stock balltop on my Hori RAP V. The battop has a more natural fit for me, and the surface on this stick is excellent. It's mostly smooth with just enough hint of texture to provide a good grip.Starman

One of the best feeling battops I have tried. I would definitely recommend a metal battopUnknown

Definitely a good change from the balltop
Very good choice for anyone that feels the balltop is too small for larger hands. Same could be said for any other battop but this one looks so cool and the weight is perfect when paired with the 2lb spring. I highly recommend this productJoshua

He's got the metal!!
I bought this along with the EXTENDED SANWA JLF HOLLOW JOYSTICK SHAFT and I use a square gate and already have a 2lb spring installed and must say it about 5-10min, but this has made a difference on my inputs. Granted this set up may not be for everyone, but if you are looking for a different feel, why not give it a try.Deadie

Super solid battop
Bought this because I wasn't entirely comfortable with my balltop and wanted to try something different. I also got the 2LB Sanwa JLF spring to pair with it and I'm glad I did. With the original spring, it felt pretty top heavy; with the 2lb spring, I got the stiffer inputs I wanted. Feels awesome; absolutely recommend.Chris

Don't let the image fool you, the aluminium battop is smooth to the touch!
Other than that it's exactly what you'd expect/want. A quality, metal battop with a good amount of heft.Freek

The best match and feel for LS 32
Matches best with LS-32 Seimitsu and installed it on my Razer Panthera fightstick Mark

Went from the stock balltop on the Hori RAP4 to the standard black Sanwa Battop and Joe to this... The feel and weight of this battop compared to everything is incredible. I'd recommend this again and again, especially when paired with a 2lb spring. Love it Unknown

Bought this to finish off my personal fightstick after putting it on a few friends arcade machines and hearing how great it was compared to the lighter sanwa battops. The weight is good but i would highly recommend the increased spring wight (2lbs). Also a good choice in colours.J2
