  • Product Description

    Seimitsu's LS series joysticks remain arguably a competitor to the Sanwa JLF series, and the standard among Versus City based arcade setups.  The LS-32 series is one of Seimitsu's most popular models to date.  Increasingly, players with a desire for increased tension control in this model had to do without, until now.

    Higher Tension Spring

    Originally started as an experiement to improve response and return to neutral, Seimitsu had a rather daunting challenge in affecting it's most popular joystick in the market - the Seimitsu LS-32-01 Joystick.  The spring's original diameter of .8mm was increased to 1.0mm, offering a denser spring overall.  This is similar to the 2lb Tension Spring for Sanwa JLF, though subjective feel is 2.5lb.  Overall, those who desire a stiffer equivalent to the LS-32 will find the LS-38 a favorable alternative. 

    SE/RE Mounting Plate, Balltop

    Seimitsu's "SE" (originally called the "RE") flat mounting plate is compatible with the Seimitsu LS-32/LS-32-01 and LS-40/LS-40-01 series joysticks. This plate mounts directly under the control panel, unlike the Seimitsu SS Mounting Plate for LS-32, LS-40, which is is compatible for installation within a MadCatz TE or similar fightsticks.  The SE mounting plate is best used for arcade "candy" cabinets.  This mounting plate can be swapped with the Seimitsu SS Mounting Plate for LS-32, LS-40.

    Compatible with a wide array of Sanwa and Seimitsu balltops and battops, the Seimitsu LS-38 series joystick comes with an adjustable restrictor plate for 2, 4, or 8-way operation.

    Bundle Control Accessories

    The LS-32 Round Main Guide enables LS-32 and LS-38 joystick fans the same smooth 360-degree control as Sanwa JLF owners enjoy with the JLF GT-O Circle Restrictor Plate Insert.  This main guide replaced the light blue square guide on the Seimitsu LS-32 and LS-32-01 joysticks, and fits below the dark blue subguide.

    The LS-32 Round Main Guide provides works with the default subguide, but for near perfect 360 degree control, you can add the Seimitsu LS-32 Triple Restrictor Plate.  This allows the actuator to easily hit the switches, affording the best control you can get with the round main-guide.
