  • Product Description

    Hori, makers of the Real Arcade Pro series of Fightsticks, embarked in a bold new direction upon deciding to develop their own joystick lever and pushbutton.  Dubbed "Hayabusa", their first foray into a special brand was met with healthy skepticism, but the lever was embraced by many Sanwa and Seimitsu diehards.

    Their first pushbutton, the Kuro, was a solid initial offering, and paved the way towards their current standard used in nearly all of their Fightsticks - the Hayabusa Matte pushbutton.

    Matte Surface. Low Profile

    Hayabusa button front and back appearanceOne of the biggest distinctions of the Hayabusa is its use of texture.  Unlike most pushbuttons, the Hayabusa sports a matte finish, along with a soft grain texture and rounded edges.  This unique eye-catching appearance allows fingers to more easily travel across the entire button layout. 

    Another aspect of the Hayabusa that is hard to miss: it is low-profile.  Similar to the Seimitsu PS-15 Pushbutton, the Hayabusa's button housing is shorter.  The design effectively shortens the activation distance before switch engagement.  You'll find that it doesn't take much to register an input, often critical where frame-accurate execution is needed.

    Hori reviewed the best features of long respected button designs, and combined them into a stronger and more responsive unit.  Additional benefits include:

    • Increased durability, up to 60% less wear and tear as claimed by Hori.
    • Tighter tolerance, due to reduced space between the plunger and housing/rim.
    • Equal response regardless of where your fingers touch the plunger
    • Softer, yet more responsive and precise due to reduced vibration when pressing down.

    Compatible with FA Silencer with tabs removed

    Bundle with Silencer 30mm Foam Washers and Save!

    Silencer is our 1mm-thick foam washer that helps to dampen the loud sounds common with tapping on the button plunger.  It conforms to the internal housing of many Sanwa or Seimitsu-style 30mm pushbuttons.

    Click "Add to Order" to save 40% off retail of a Silencer foam washer for each button you purchase. 

    Silencer Installation

    installing the Silencer foam pads into a Sanwa or Seimitsu pushbutton is straightforward.  Place the washer - plastic film side down - into the button housing.  Align the small tabs so that they stick out of the holes on each side of the housing.

    Much like the Seimitsu PS-15 series pushbutton, you can install the Silencer in a Hayabusa button by removing the top and bottom tabs of the foam washer.

    Compatibility with Fightsticks

    Though Hori makes no claim to the Hayabusa's compatibility with other fightsticks, its use of .110 gold connectors and standard 30mm size ensures a likely fit with any existing fightstick or custom whose hole spacing is already designed to accomodate pushbuttons such as Sanwa OBSF or Seimitsu PS-14 series.


    24 vs 30mm

    When processing orders, a frequent mistake we found among new players is choosing the wrong size for action buttons, such as punch and kick.

    Within the fighting game genre, Japanese arcade buttons commonly consist of two diameter sizes: 24 millimeter and 30 milllimeter (mm). In most configurations, 30mm represents your action button.  These are front facing, appearing most prominent on your Fightstick control panel.  Option button, such as "Start", "Select", or more recently "Option", "Touch", or "Share" are usually 24mm.

    UPDATE: Owners of Neo Geo AES Joysticks will need 24mm pushbuttons instead of 30mm (Thanks SRK's DEZALB)

    Below is a visual representation of a common Fightstick control panel.  Throughout this article, we will mark 24mm in green, and 30mm in Orange.

    Checking the Proper Size

    button-30mm.pngAnother way that players can misinterpret the pushbutton size is by measuring the pushbutton plunger.  Have a look at the diagram at right.

    The plunger - the part that you press down to represent an input - is 25mm or a bit smaller in most 30mm pushbuttons.  Often this leads to the conclusion that one needs a 24mm button and not 30mm.

    Similarly measuring the button rim can lead to confusion, as it is intentionally larger than the button hole it is placed in.  You don't want to use these measurements.  Instead, review the button housing diameter, or the hole the button will be placed in.  You can do this with a caliper - a digital caliper is often quite helpful for this and other arcade-related projects.

    Control Panel Configuration

    Most Fightsticks from MadCatz, Hori, Qanba, and similar will use these two sizes.  How the buttons are used will depend on the model joystick that you own. Over time, we'll provide example configurations for specific popular Fightstick models and arcade cabinets using the color key for 24mm (green) and 30mm (orange).  We'll also expand the key for future models if another size is introduced, and we offer for sale.

    1. SF 2.

      No tienen defecto, son de respuesta rĂ¡pida. Lo penoso es que no haya mayor variedad de colores. on Nov 20th 2021

    2. Excelente producto

      Los botones son excelentes on Nov 10th 2021

    3. Solid Buttons

      The matte finish on these buttons look gorgeous, which is the reason why I decided to try them out to begin with. Much like many of the other reviews have already mentioned, the closest comparison one could make in terms of how these buttons feel is sanwa buttons. The lower profile of these buttons make for a snappier feel and sound. Really no complaints for these buttons other than the fact that they're snap-ins (screw-ins are so much easier to install/remove in my opinion, and have no risk of breaking off the tabs of the buttons when doing so). on Sep 26th 2021

    4. Good middle of the road choice

      Not bad, a good compromise if you find Sanwa too sensitive and others too firm.

      It has a "squishy" feel to them so they offer a bit more resistance but still can be pressed reasonably lightly to get the input.

    5. Very nice buttons; too bad Hori doesn't produce more for home market!

      These are probably the best alternative buttons to the Sanwa OBSF-30 on the market now.
      I think they're at least as good as the Sanwas. I like both brands of pushbuttons and they work for me. I was surprised by how well the Hayabusa pushbuttons match up to the Sanwa -- they're at least as comfortable and responsive although I think I prefer the texture on the Hori plungers.
      I recently had the chance to test the pushbuttons on a joystick that I ultimately returned. These pushbuttons work very nicely in tandem with the Hori Hayabusa lever.
      I wish Hori did manufacture more pushbuttons than they did in more colors because I wouldn't mind replacing some buttons on a few Hori HRAP's with these buttons! I'll probably NEVER replace these buttons on future hardware should I buy another HRAP model because I felt the buttons were that good. You really do NOT need to replace the pushbuttons on current-production HRAP models. It's not like the old days (pre-2012) before the SA models became the default productions HRAPs. The generic buttons on the mass-market, non-SA models of the HRAP 1, 2, and 3 were junk and left such a bad taste that people who don't know better presume Hori hardware isn't that good. That last impression is absolutely untrue for the Hori Hayabusa lever and pushbuttons.
      The only strikes against these buttons are again, Hori doesn't manufacture enough of them, and they need to make more colors available -- at least red, navy or sky blue, and maybe yellow in addition to the black and white buttons that are easier to source!

    6. Feel amazing

      I used these to replace the buttons on my Qanba Drone (after replacing the stick earlier). They feel nice and "snappier". on May 7th 2020

    7. Excellent Sanwa alternative

      I got these mainly for the looks and texture at first. Didn't think they'd turn into my daily driver over your typical sanwa buttons. They totally did. These little guys are amazing. Feel great on the fingers and feel snappier than stock sanwas while still retaining the quick snap back of sanwa. It's like someone combined Seimitsu and Sanwa buttons and this was born. Good stuff. on Feb 19th 2020

    8. Not a big fan

      I bought these to replace my Kuro buttons on my Hori VLX Premium. While the matte finish feels nice, they just don't compare to Sanwa buttons in every other category. on Jul 28th 2019

    9. Great buttons, tiny problem.

      So, i absolutely love the hayabusa buttons. They are fantastic, but there's one tiny problem. They start to squeak after a lot of use, and i'm not a fan of that. But if that's not something that bothers anyone, i absolutely recommend them because they're fantastic. on Dec 3rd 2018

    10. Feels great

      I replaced the stock Qanba buttons in my Qanba Carbon with these. I was looking for something more low profile and responsive, and I definitely got it. The matte finish, low profile, and cushiony feel of these buttons make them feel amazing on your fingers, too. on Sep 14th 2018
