  • Product Description

    The Crown SDL-301-DX represents Samducksa's latest joystick lever evolution, merging the sensitive control of industry standard Sanwa JLF, and the increasingly desired appeal of the Korean lever.  This time, the company aims to make the lever more accessible to lower profile Fightsticks by adjusting the height of the shaft and actuator.

    Inspired by RZR INFILTRATION

    RZR Infiltration Profile (credit Razer)More commonly recognized as the INFILTRATION lever, the renowned Korean professional player lent his experience and preferences to develop the SDL-301-DX into a lever that he would personally utilize in fighting game tournaments.  The lever features a removable battop design, allowing for interchangeability with other battops - a first for Crown.  You can utilize Sanwa compatible battops for customization.

    Please note: from our tests, we found that ball tops are not compatible; among other factors, the included shaft cover does not extend all the way to the balltop.

    The SDL-301-DX also adopts the MJ style low-profile collar, allowing for compatibility with most Japanese SS joystick mounts commonly found in Fightsticks.  This places the lever just a few millimeters below the panel.  The low-profile collar corrects some of the control issues that are found in earlier models such as the 303-FK, which removed the collar altogether.

    Shorter Shaft for Better Clearance

    In 2017, the SDL-301-DX debuted with a low profile collar, similar to the Crown CWL-309MJ-KMS-ST25 Joystick. While this and its Japan-friendly mounting plate indeed allowed the Korean lever to fit in a number of Japanese-style enclosures, its shaft height still posed challenges to lower profile Fightsticks. Often the shaft would scrape against the inner housing, which affected play.

    The recent 2018 model aims to address this issue by reducing the shaft height by 2.3 millimeters from the bottom. The actuator is also .95 millimeters shorter. This places the shaft further into the housing, which should provide better clearance for lower profile Fightstick enclosures. As always, it is helpful to check specifications to ensure proper fit in your specific model. Spec illustrations are available for review below the comparison chart and in the photo gallery.

    Default Octagonal Gate

    Octagonal gate included with SDL-301-DXAnother departure from Korean levers is the SDL-301-DX's default use of an octagonal gate.  Octagonal gates are designed to allow smoother circular control while retaining a defined corner you can feel during play.  Samducksa's model is a hybrid of circular and square control, with a very subtle corner. This helps to retain the authentic feeling of a Korean lever, while introducing something new and uncommon to the line of joysticks. The gate is secured by 8 long screws, and removable.

    Available separately is the Crown SDL-301-DX Round Restrictor Plate, which offers the more common circular control of a Korean lever.

    Softer and Harder Tension Grommets Available

    Available separately, 25 tension and 40 tension grommetsThe SDL-301-DX-S contains a 35A shore tension silicone grommer. Available for purchase separately are two rubber grommets - the white 25 tension and red 45 tension.  Higher tension offers quicker return to center, while also catering to those who simply desire more tension when playing - similar to our Sanwa JLF 2lb and 4lb springs.  On the other side of the spectrum is a lighter tension that is closer to Sanwa's JLF joystick lever, which remains a player favorite within the industry. 

    Gersung A3 Microswitch 

    Gersung GSM-V0323A3 Microswitch Included with SDL-301-DXEach SDL-301-DX utilizes the Gersung GSM-V0323A3 microswitch.  This earlier model remains a solid choice amongst players, with a slightly higher tension which works well with the 301's softer 35A shore grommet. 

    Will it Fit My Fightstick?

     While designed for use in Japanese mount-compatible Fightsticks, the 301-DX's tall construction does create difficulty when attempting to install into low-profile hardware.  Documented compatibility so far:

    • Razer Panthera/Atrox
    • Hori VLX
    • Qanba Dragon
    • Hori RAP N
    • MadCatz TE2 (very tight fit)
    • Qanba Q4RAF
    • Qanba Obsidian
    • Qanba Crystal
    • Hori HRAP v4 (PS4/PS3), v5 (Xbox 360/Xbox One)

    What's Included?

    Partial assembly requiredEach Crown SDL is packed within its own box with padding.  Some assembly is required as Samducksa separates the battop from the housing. Along with battop and shaft cover, You will receive the following separate pieces for installation:

    • SDL-301-DX actuator
