The SANWA LB-30-N Battop is an American style handle, great for those who are used to playing with this type. Included with the battop is the Sanwa LB-30 N-S Battop Adapter for installing onto M6 threading compatible shafts. Without the adapter, it is compatible with the original Sanwa JLW models, which have a larger diameter shaft.
The battop it self feels amazing texture, comfort amd performance wise. My problem is with the adapter. I wish they put an indent on the top and bottom for a flathead screwdriver to help take it off the shaft and put it in the battop. The adapter will stay on the shaft if you unscrew the battop and is hard to take off with out pliers. If they added a spot for a flat head to help unscrew it I would give 5 stars.
For a personal test I may be using loctite to secure the adapter into the battop so it wont come out again seeing as they all ship with one and it makes it easier to switch ball and battop then.Chris

A subjective choice
It doesn't look and feel as nice as Sanwa's balltops as it lacks the clean glossy finish and instead has a matte texture, but it is a comfortable shape. Worth a try if you don't feel comfortable with a ball and just want to explore your options, but I think it could be better visually.Matt

Solid bat top
Very nice bat top. Installed easily on a JLF. Only complaint is it tends to be a little loose so I had to tighten it pretty tight for it not to loosen while playing. Unknown

I use this with my Sanwa JLF sticks. Note that while the dust cover still fits, the shaft will no longer fit as a result of how long the battop is.
That said, I'm really happy with this product. I was worried the quality might be a little low but that wasn't the case. Feels great in hand and helped a lot of with control over the stick.Brian Luger

Great Hand feel
The finish is a soft mix between Glossy and Matte, that feels more natural then most glossy ball tops. The choice between ball and bat is something I don't want to get into, but this is a great bat if you're interested!David

Comes loose and is vaguely uncomfortable
Got it purely to try out a bat top since I've only ever used ball tops. Keeps screwing loose on my JLF no matter how many times I re-tighten it. Also (though this could be attributed to my grip) it never really... Felt right in my hands. Heard it could be due to the rough matte surface.
Problems might just be me though, because otherwise the product itself is, well, what it makes itself out to be. Completely average.Unknown

Replaced the ball top on my rap4 to this bat top and it's great. I've always preferred battles and the matte finish on this over a glossy one is much appreciated.AARON JOHNSON

No grip at all
I used to use a Korean stick and when I want back to Sanwa ball tops, I missed the extra height and shape of the Korean sticks. I purchased a Sanwa bat top only to find that is was nothing like the Korean bat top in terms of texture. The Korean bat top was smooth rubber finish that allowed for grip. The Sanwa on the other hand was a rough texture with a matte finish. My fingers and thumb slid off the bat with no grip at all. I couldn't do proper movements. Unknown

Great but not for me.i like balls!
I grew up playing with bat tops in the arcades. So I figured I wold be better with a bat. After I got my stick I ordered a bat top. It was hard to convert to a stick after being on a pad for so long. So I was laying with the ball top for a week until my bat top came in. When it came in I installed it and I couldn't pull off any moves. So I said screw it and went right back to the ball. I'm sure with practice it would be ok but forgot it now.
The actual product is great.instalks so easy and grip is good and build is vey good.
Got for it if u like the bat top.Unknown

Easy install, fit into my Qanba Q1 with no problems. It feels a lot lighter than a ball top and the texture is really smooth so it can feel a bit slippery if your hands get sweaty, but otherwise it's perfect!Unknown
