    1. Too loose for me

      Don’t get me wrong, this is a great stick, but personally, I think it’s too loose. I plan on upgrading to an optical lever, but this will do for now. on Aug 21st 2019

    2. Works Perfectly

      I got this to replace my lever on my Razor panthera fits and works perfectly on Aug 16th 2019

    3. Great joystick!

      Bought this to replace the off brand stick in my mayflash F500 and it is like night and day. The feel of it is leagues better, feeling a lot tighter than the mayflash's loose cheap stick. Was easy to install and had zero issues. It's another great Sanwa product, enough said. on Jul 19th 2019

    4. The best upgrade!

      Super fast shipment and everything arrived amazingly. Using this as a replacement for the joystick on my F300 and it's a world of difference coupled with the octo gate and oversized actuator! on Apr 20th 2019

    5. Good Replacement for the Hori Hayabusa Stick

      I didn't like the stock Hori Hayabusa Stick that came with my Hori RAP Pro N and I've always heard Sanwa JLFs are great so I replaced it. 100% the best decision ever. Inputs are very easy to make for 2D and 3D fighters. The tension in the Joystick is perfect and not too loose so you don't have to worry about accidental inputs like with the hayabusa joystick. Still works amazing after a couple months of regular use.

      Easy to install, fast shipping and the joystick was packed very well so no need to worry about it getting damaged during shipment!

    6. The best.

      The best of the best... if you are really into fighting games you need one of these 100%, it has a nice balance between tension and speed.

      The sanwa JLF joystick is the best out of the box,so much better than my stock Hori Hayabusa wich was I little too loose for me, but the hayabusa improves a lot paired with the kowal 1mm oversized actuator now it feels just as good as the Sanwa JLF.

    7. Very Happy!!!

      Can't complain. Fast shipping and everything arrived perfectly packaged. Installed this in my custom arcade cabinet and what a difference it made compared to my old setup. Thanks Focus Attack for quality product and services! on Feb 12th 2019

    8. Works great in an 8bitdo stick with some minor wiring

      I bought one of these to put in my 8bitdo N30 arcade stick to replace the knockoff Sanwa stick in it, that was already starting to wear out after a couple months of use. The N30 is basically a Mayflash F300 clone, but the PCB replaces the Sanwa 5-pin connector with the Bluetooth module, so some creativity is required to wire this stick up. The quick and dirty solution I used was to twist signal wires from the PCB to the matching wires on the included 5-pin cable and cover the twists with electrical tape, and doing the same with all the ground wires. It works, but it's ugly. A more permanent solution will be crimping and attaching quick disconnects.

      Overall the stick feels much better and more responsive than the stick originally in the N30. I also matched mine with the 2 lb spring, and I like the extra stiffness of the stick using it. Highly recommended, and is a great way to turn a cheapo stick like a Mayflash or 8bitdo into something much greater.

    9. Legendary!

      I installed this on my Hori Real Arcade Pro N Fightstick w/ a 2lb spring and octagonal gate. The stick is very accurate and stiff with the spring upgrade. I bought this mainly because I play DBZF and the Hayabusa stick with the octagonal gate was just too slippery especially on any up forward movements. I would frequently miss IAD on DBZF because the stick couldn't neutral well and the octogonal gate wasn't sharp enough. With the new stick, gate and spring, the inputs are very accurate and the stiffness of the stick gives me a nice solid feel.

    10. Rock Solid Joystick

      Equipped with the octagonal restrictor plate, this is the standard joystick in the Super 78, Super Twin 78, Super CV, and Super Arcade Controller Plus at Edladdin Controllers. Very happy with these in every regard. on Sep 27th 2018
