Important: Black Foam Pad Textured Appearance Will Vary Due to Friction
Foam pads are slightly porous, creating a unique texture that when scratched or rubbed, will appear lighter than the base foam color. You may notice this upon opening the packaging, or using it on a table or lap. This is normal, and will not affect its function.
A foam pad is a great choice for those who enjoy playing fighting games with an arcade stick on their lap, or on a flat surface such as a table. Now, you can get an attractive custom etch and cut for your favorite Fightstick model.
The pad is made of a synthetic rubber foam, custom cut to shape with a strong adhesive backing, and attaches to the underside of your Fightstick. Lap players will appreciate the extra padding offered here as it removes the feeling of cold steel or plastic on one's legs. Additionally, the foam is designed to add friction when moved, allowing the Fightstick to largely remain in place when playing on a tabletop.
Designed for Venom Arcade, Mayflash F500, 8BitDo FC30 and Similar
The Mayflash F500 design is used across a variety of models and brands, such as the Venom Arcade Fightstick, F500 Elite, 8BitDo FC30 Arcade, and older variants. This is not compatible with the smaller Mayflash F300, Venom multi-console, or 8bitdo NS300 model.
Please note: You do not need to remove the original screws on the bottom of the metal panel.
This model already has four rubber feet positioned on each corner of the bottom metal plate. These rubber feet are held in place using a very strong adhesive. To remove them, we recommend using a combination of a heat blower or hair blow dryer and and a scraper tool. It will take some effort to remove them.
You may have adhesive residue after peeling the rubber feet from the metal base, as seen in the photo above. To address this, apply rubbing alcohol, isopropyl, or solvent adhesive-removal products such as Goo-Gone™ onto each of the corners and let soak for 15-30 minutes. Use a plastic scraper to lift the remaining residue, then dry using a paper cloth.
The foam is sized to the edges of this Fightstick model.
- Before removing the adhesive liner, it is recommended that you perform a test-alignment of the pad onto your Fightstick. This allows you to ensure that any screw holes center reasonably with the foam's holes.
- When you have confirmed position with liner on, first peel off the liner and lightly place the foam pad - adhesive side down - onto the surface. Lightly positioning will give you an opportunity to adjust slightly in case the alignment needs correction.
- Once you are satisfied with the alignment, press firmly across the padding to allow the adhesive to set.

Choose foam pad thickness, color, pattern, whether to include a custom laser etch graphic in center.
A thinner 2mm is more commonly associated with commercial Fightsticks such as Hori, Qanba or Razer. Great for those who desire a lower profile or playing on a flat surface such as a table. The thicker 4mm is perfect for those playing on a lap, given the extra padding.
Choose popular Black or unique White color foam. More colors may arrive in time.
