    1. Works great.

      Ordered the joystick and it came in about 3 days. Easy to install and works like a charm. on Aug 24th 2018

    2. Tight Actuation, Light Spring, Excellent Quality

      The actuator activates the switches with almost no movement. The switches themselves feel nice and tight. Very little bouncing with a stock balltop, some bounceback with the stock spring and a 45mm balltop. on Aug 20th 2018

    3. Very nice

      Very tight stick I can feel the difference than the qanba original. Other than one screw not coming off so easily off the plate so I can install the kowal 1mm it is perfect. on Aug 2nd 2018

    4. This is my first Joystick purchase and I'm glad its this one.

      I have a Quanba Drone and my Quanba Drone default stick was getting lose, So I replace it with this Sanwa stick. It works great and it was a easy installment. This is my first time purchasing A joystick and I'm glad it's this site. THISBIS FOR REALLZ. IM HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE. on Jul 17th 2018

    5. Just what I needed

      Super happy with the product!! The joystick is easy to install and it feels great. Inputs don’t drop anymore so I’m glad I can get back to my grind. Definitely recommend this to anyone who has broken/joystick problems. on Jun 12th 2018

    6. Jlf is the way to go

      I have moded over 15 fights sticks for my self and friends, and one thing is the same. The JLF is the stick of choice for every project. It is aleays consistent same results and is solidly build. I higly recommend it on May 6th 2018

    7. industry standard for an arcade joystick, nuff said

      if you're reading this you already know how important a joystick is to arcade game play.

      precision timing and quality standards are what matter most when i'm playing any arcade fighting game.

      the JLF is a tried and true standard for arcades, and is a vast improvement from cheap stock sticks.

      quality switches, precision molding, & can be modified (but perfectly fine left stock)

    8. high quality responsive jlf

      If you're looking to replace your worn-out stick with a new one, this is definitely recommended. Super responsive out of the box. on Apr 18th 2018

    9. Most popular for a reason

      They're great, responsive, durable, clean, etc. I can't speak to other top brands, but if you're just getting into sticks, this will serve you much better than unbranded stock sticks. Much like the unbranded buttons, I would constantly be seeing doubles on my directional inputs. After installing this, a 2lb tension spring (good for gorilla style players), and an oversized actuator, I am hitting my inputs very cleanly every time.

      Just remember that it won't make you a better player, it will remove one of many possible obstructions to becoming a better player.

    10. Feels great - responsive

      I upgraded the standard stick in a Mayflash F500 to this, and it is a huge difference. My movements are more precise now. Thanks Sanwa and FA. on Mar 6th 2018
