Other Details
  • Product Description

    The Short Sanwa JLF Joystick Shaft removes 8mm (.31") length over the stock 68mm shaft (from base to threading).  This shaft was designed as a gameplay performance enhancement solution, specifically for those who prefer a shorter throw.  It is compatible with joysticks from the Sanwa JLF series, including TP-8YT, TP-8YT-SK, TPRG-AYT-SK, and TPRG-8BYT-SK.

    Compatibility with Sanwa and Seimitsu Accessories

    The hollow shaft matches the threading found in the stock shaft.  This means that nearly all balltop and battop accessories that currently fit the standard JLF series shaft are compatible. Exceptions include all Sanwa JLF-CD Shaft & Dustwasher Set models, since the shaft is shorter than the standard model, and the dustwasher conforms to the shaft.  Instead, please consider Solo Sanwa JLF Dustwasher - Fits Sanwa JLF without Shaft Cover (Set of 2) when purchasing this shaft.

    Works with Hori Hayabusa Lever

    The Hori Hayabusa Joystick has remained popular partly due to its interchangeability with Sanwa JLF compatible components such as springs and actuator.  Of them, you can also install this shaft.  Our support contact Joey Wainwright shows you how to install the shaft in this articlenew-window-icon.png

    Design Collaboration with KOWAL

    KOWAL is the name of a well-respected member on forums and elsewhere in the arcade community.  He has extensive knowledge of the inner workings of many control devices, and designer of many popular gameplay enhancement products such as the Kowal 1mm Oversize Actuator for Sanwa JLF Series JoystickKOWAL Hayabusa Octopus Octagonal Restrictor Plate and KOWAL LS.ST Short Throw Mod for Seimitsu LS-55/56/58/60-01 Joystick, plus essentials such as the KOWAL Flat Plate Converter.  With his permission, we were able to design a joystick shaft series that precisely measures the specific model and its mounting plate variations, supporting his brand of performance solutions that highlight accuracy and compatibility above all else.

    1. Shorter Throw is the Way to Go!

      If you prefer less jerking of the wrist and more finger/thumb control over the stick this will be a necessity to your build! Get it! on Dec 24th 2021

    2. Feels like Seimitsu length but tiny bit higher

      Feels like Seimitsu length but tiny bit higher.
      Also tightens up the spring a little making it feel better.
      Feels much better and slightly tighter than the standard shaft.

    3. Prefer the feel

      I've always disliked longer shafts on arcade sticks. I purchased this and installed it into my stock Madcatz TE1 and it made it feel 10x better. on Aug 23rd 2018

    4. LS-56 Like Feel

      I've tried many of the Seimitsu joysticks and found the Ls-56 to be a favorite of mine. Unfortunately a lot of the old HRAP joysticks are easier to install Sanwa joysticks. When I read the product description about a shorter throw I figured I'd give it a try. Keep in mind my JLF joystick also has the Kowal oversized actuator and 2 pound spring installed. After installing the shorter shaft and playing a few hours of 3rd Strike and MVC2 it felt very similar to the Seimitsu LS-56. I would highly recommend this replacement JLF shaft for any SHMUP fans or fighting game fans that prefer a shorter throw. on Jul 10th 2017

    Gummowned Tri-mod WIRELESS LED lighted joystick

    SRK's Gummowned proudly showed us his tri-mod Wireless LED-lighted joystick at GVN Summer Jam. The buttons and balltop change colors based on chosen system (xbox360, PS3, or Wii), and can mix LED colors from each! His pride and joy. :) Sorry for the vertical positioning. Was recorded on my iPhone.
