    1. Awesome On My Mortal Kombat 1up arcade.

      I've had these new 4lb springs installed for about 3 weeks and the joysticks on the 1up arcade are now much better! Compared to the lighter springs the 1up Arcade came with, the new 4lb springs gives the 1up arcade stock joysticks a stiffer control. For me, it does make it easier to excute character moves and for the amount of money and easy installation, it's worth it! on Jul 8th 2019

    2. worked perfect on my sanwa clones

    3. Heavy in a good way.

      I'm really enjoying the spring for Dragon Ball fighterz, it allows me to dash forward and back more accurately than using the Standard jlf Spring. It's heavy and hard to use at first, but it's also a very satisfying workout. It makes building that muscle memory easier. This is probably the best way to train yourself for more accurate inputs. Then after switch down to a 2 lb spring.

      I definitely recommend grabbing it along with the 2 lb spring.

    4. Thicc Spring

      I used this to replace the stock 2lb spring in my Hori Hayabusa stick, and it made a huge difference. If you are replacing the ball of your stick for a battpop knob I suggest you get one of these. It may feel too firm for some at first but I am sure it will loosen over time. Personally I am rough on my arcade stick so I am really happy I got this heavier spring. on May 3rd 2019

    5. Really helps ,y joystick.

      My only issue with Sanwa stick are they are too loose. The 4 lb. Spring helps fix that problem. Thanks FA! on Apr 18th 2019
