  • Product Description

    The 2lb tension spring for Sanwa JLF replaces the existing spring found in the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick, or Sanwa JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK Silent Microswitch Joystick, adding 1.1lb more force than the original. This results in a stiffer joystick, which is favored amongst some players who don't like the loose feel of the JLF. Using this spring, you no longer have to combine the original with a LS-32 to achieve the same level of tension.

    1. Perfect upgrade

      This spring adds the perfect amount of tension to the JLF, would recommend to anyone looking for a little more resistance over the stock spring. on Jul 17th 2019

    2. Large Difference in Stiffness from Stock JLF Spring

      The spring itself was fine, but I found that the stiffness from the 2lbs was too much. I don't recommend you replace the spring if you mainly play 2D fighting games like UNIST, Blazblue, etc.... that require a lot of fast motions because your hand will easily get tired after playing for a while. However, I do recommend it for games like Tekken that require you to go to neutral fast. on Jul 15th 2019

    3. Slightly too stiff and squeaks.

      I really wish there was an in-between option between the stock 0.9lb spring and this one. something like a 1.5. I can tell a HUUUGE difference, but the stock spring is too soft, this one is just a bit too stiff.

      Also, and maybe I just need to break it in a bit more, but it squeaks now. My stick never did that before. What's more is that it only squeaks when I hit a certain direction. Maybe I also need to open it up and make sure everything was re-installed correctly... but it's quite annoying.

      Overall though, still massively preferable to the stock spring.
