  • Product Description

    Quarter-circle, half-circle and full 360 motions no longer take effort or feel unnatural after installing a Sanwa GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Gate into your TE or Hori/Sanwa JLF setup.  A full 8 corners allows for smoother and more responsive motions for fireball, dragon-uppercut and spinning piledriver attacks.  Those investing their time in wrestling chars such as Zangief or Shoto chars such as Ryu, Ken, Sakura, Akuma, and Dan(!), deserve to swap out their existing 4-way gate for this one.

    The Sanwa GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Gate is compatible with the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick and Sanwa JLF-TP-8Y-SK Joystick (No Plate Installed).

    1. I can give you 8 reasons why this is good...

      ...But trust me, you'll have to find out yourself! It's Sanwa quality! on Jul 30th 2023

    2. Feels Good

      Feels good, a little more defined than a Kowal gate. The Kowal gate feels more circular and less defined but this is more of an octagon with hard angles. I like both brands of gates and it doesn't effect my play. This fits my Qanba Crystal joystick and maybe in the future I'll buy another one for a JLF when I get another stick. on May 15th 2023

    3. Exactly what I needed

      Simple installation and the adjustment to octagonal stick just feel So Smooth! on Oct 19th 2022

    4. Preferable to a square gate, all day long

      I get it that square restrictor gates are the norm for most sticks these days, but having one of those on your stick just makes it sloppy when it comes to accurately hitting the corners for QC or HC moves in fighting games. Swapping in an octo-gate is the easiest fix one can do to up their game without having to re-train their muscle memory to not push too deep on the diagonals. Highly recommended as an upgrade to any stick that can use it. on Mar 18th 2022

    5. Good if you ride the GATE

      If you like the feel of a circular gate, with deep corners, then this for you. Super easy to install and sturdy when in. Didn’t improve my gameplay but it might be different for you. on Nov 5th 2020

    6. Easy to Install

      Modding your stick with one of these is the easiest thing you can do and you’ll probably see drastic improvement in your ability to input commands. Before this I had a square gate and found it somewhat difficult to reliably pull off directional commands and would accidentally jump out of QCF’s. This is a life saver and a game changer! on Sep 27th 2020

    7. Easy Install, Works Great

      Super easy installation, and it works just as I hoped it would. Especially good for 2D fighters, but unfortunately doesn’t feel as good as a square gate, let alone a Korean, for 3D ones. Overall, highly recommend. on Feb 19th 2020

    8. Better feel using a fight stick now

      I am transitioning into using a fightstick and decided to mod mine with this. As far as I know, installing this piece on the joystick seemed fairly easy. I definitely feel the difference and it is a whole lot better. When playing Tekken I was able to practice better at wave dashing and back dashing. on Feb 9th 2020

    9. Quite Literally Night and Day

      I'm a relative newbie when it comes to stick modification but I'm currently running a Sanwa JLF in a Razer Panthera which came with a square gate. After dropping too many Hilda combos in UNIST I decided to spring for the Octo gate and 236 motions are smoother than they've ever been. Installation/replacement of the existing gate was painless and it completely changed my gameplay. The plastic for this gate is what you expect from Sanwa, Dense and meaty - just like my lever motions now. on Jan 22nd 2020

    10. Turn my Arcade1up from "bleh" to "yeah"

      After buying the Arcade1up cabinet, I thought I had just gotten rusty at Mortal Kombat because I lost every match and couldn't do any special moves or fatalities. After installing this 8-way (which only took a few minutes), everything is crisp and special moves are easy to pull off just like I remember.

      I still lose every match but now I know that it is my fault.
