Cherry is now rebranded to ZF. The ZF switch is supposed to remain the same construction and characteristics as Cherry D44x, only new branding on the physical microswitch. Our inventory may contain a mix of the two brands over the next few months and we are not separating them. We will not honor requests to send only Cherry switches, nor return requests to swap for Cherry. If you want Cherry-brand microswitches, please find another retail store that might have those older units on hand, as they are no longer manufactured. More information

Same spring as long stem. Take the spring out and cut at least 1 turn of the coil to eliminate button Jams and too make quick pressing more reliable.Jeff Derry

First poster is correct
Yes, the spring definitely makes this button more difficult to push, my suggestion is to get cherry switches, take the spring out completely and get ready to kiss me!mister_non

Good but without its flaws.
The IL short stem pushbutton is meant to be use by those who want IL buttons for their arcade sticks (mostly Japanese) that are too small for the regular long stem buttons. While this button does a good job of providing the quality that IL is known for, I couldn't help but notice how much more tense the button push is compared to a long stem. After some inspection, I discovered that the spring used for the short stem is the same sized spring used in a long stem, which, given how it has to fit in the smaller casing, gives the short stem a bit more tension that the standard long stems. Its not too bad, but it can be noticeable to those who've used long stem buttons, and it might cause a bit more fatigue than usual. I suggest comparing this short stem button with a long stem for yourself before getting yourself a whole set.Gil E.

Fits ion iCade Button Mounting Holes
This button fits into the mounting holes in the ion iCade "cabinet". The spring action is improved and, when combined with upgraded switches, respond far better than the default buttons. Solid blue color. Recommended.mPwalters
