  • Product Description

    The Seimitsu LS-40 is highly desired amongst Neo Geo fans, especially those who own the Japanese candy cab.  The PCB type differs from the LS-40 Fastener type in that its main control board and microswitches are housed in a PCB with 5-pin connector.  The LS-40 and LS-40-01 have the following characteristics

    • Shortest throw distance
    • Shortest engage distance.
    • Soft, sensitive spring like the Sanwa JLF.
    • Comes with square gate only.
    • Small "deadzone"

    Compatble with Seimtsu LB-35 balltops, LB-39 bubbletops, color shaft and dustwasher sets

    You can find plenty of color customization options for the LS-56.  Now available are Seimitsu solid and translucent color shaft and dustwasher sets, plus solid color LB-35 bubbletops, and translucent LB-39 bubbletops.  Use these to swap the default black up to 7 solid color and 10 translucent colors accessories.

    RE Plate installed. 5-pin harness included.  Compatible with LS-32 SS Plate. 

    The Seimitsu LS-40-01 is about the same size as the Seimitsu LS-32, and comes with the RE plate installed.  If you intend to install into a Fightstick, you will likely need the Seimitsu SS Mounting Plate for LS-32, LS-40.

    1. Amazing stick!

      Being an owner of the Hori RAP N, the stick unfortunately came with the Hayabusa. The throw was extremely long, and I often missed my inputs and easily got tired. I switched to using an all-button controller because I thought sticks weren't for me.

      And then I've heard about the LS-40's short throw, so I got one and installed it. I found myself doing much much cleaner inputs! Highly recommended

    2. My favorite joystick with one small flaw

      Every joystick I use ends up compared to this one. This is the most precise and responsive stick I've ever used. It's excellent for shooters, great for fighting games, and comfortable for everything else. It's my #1 for multicades. My only complaint is the lack of an octagonal gate option. Because of that, I sometimes prefer a Hayabusa or JLF with oversized actuator and 2lb spring for certain fighting games. However, that's a pricy option for a specific use case. For 98% of my joystick needs, I go with the LS-40. on Jul 8th 2018

    3. Good stick short throw

      The throw really is pretty short.

      The stick itself is short so make sure you're putting it into the plate that raises the stick.

    4. Short throw make precise input easier

      Bought this stick to replace my Sanwa JLF and never been happier. Short throw make any inputs easier for people like me who has tendency to press buttons faster than moving the joystick resulting in dropping combos
      Had a few difficulties installing the stick to Madcatz Fightstick Pro, because apparently you need to plug the pin in reverse or else it will only recognize some directions

    5. Perfect fit

      Feels like the perfect Japanese stick for me. Short throws similar to the Crown sticks, square gate and balltop. Would recommend this for those that feel the throw is too long on the JLF or Hayabusa on Jul 30th 2016

    6. Good stick

      This is a good stick. I find it very smooth and movable. Only down side is that it is a square gate and unfortunately I cannot find any modifications to get any other gates on it. That could be just that I'm a newbie at this. on Aug 31st 2015
