    Arcade Sticks Indonesia's Golden Silicone series of tension grommets for the Myoungshin Fanta Joystick Lever allows you to customize how much you want while playing.  With higher tension promoting a faster return to neutral, yet softer tensions catering to your wavedash performance in games like Tekken, your preferred color can give you confidence to play at your best.

    Good At Cornering

    Myoungshin Fanta tension grommet (left) versus ASI tension grommet (right)Each Golden Silicone tension grommet is made of ShinEtsu Silicone Elastomer, and features an enlarged hole at each corner. This promotes equal tension when moving in cardinal and diagonal directions.

    The photo at right shows the differences between the original Fanta tension grommet, and ASI's equivalent. Please note that the black plastic core on the original Fanta tension grommet is later swapped into the ASI Golden Silicone grommet.

    Color by the Numbers

    Each Golden Silicone grommet are uniquely color-coded to represent their hardness/tensile strength, making it easy to identify if you desire to switch to a different tension.  The list below details each color and hardness, measured using a KORI calibrated Durometer.

    How to Install

    Of note, installing the grommet requires removing the plastic core at the center of the original grommet and placing it in the new grommet.

    ASI Golden Silicone Install Step 1 ASI Golden Silicone Install Step 1A
    The Myoungshin Fanta's original plate is held together with a screw and nut combination.  While these were not designed for removal by consumers, you can unscrew via a Phillips or JIS screwdriver from the top.  The nut at the bottom of the Fanta's housing may spin, which could require you to pinch the nut in place with your thumb while you screw from the top. The extra pressure from your thumb should keep the nut in place while you continue to unscrew. 

    Once the screws are removed, the Myoungshin's mounting plate should lift upward and away.  The next step is to remove the shaft from the housing.  The Fanta contains an e-clip at bottom of the housing.  E-clips are often used to keep the joystick lever shaft in place while allowing it to spin freely during gameplay.  You will remove this e-clip by wedging a mini flathead screwdriver into the open space of the clip and shaft.  Be careful when trying to pull the clip away from the shaft, as the pressure contained between the shaft and e-clip can cause it to fly out, and its small size makes it easy to lose track.

    With the mounting plate and shaft removed, you can now lift the original collar plate from the Fanta's housing to reveal the existing grommet. It is here that you will remove the grommet's plastic core so you can use it in the ASI Golden Silicone grommet. Next, lift the original Fanta grommet from the housing.  You will now remove the plastic core from the original grommet.  To do this, you will push downwards on one portion of the plastic core until it starts to push away from the rubber grommet.  Don't be afraid to use excessive force, as it is needed to remove the core; the rubber grommet is strong and should not tear.

    Now, push the original Fanta grommet's plastic core into the ASI Golden Silicone through its center opening.  Again, push hard - you will not damage the grommet through excessive force. One approach to try is to insert the core from a vertical angle, then twist as it reaches the center until you can snap the silicone grommet around it. With the original grommet in place, or the ASI Golden Delrin Core, you can now reverse the install steps and enjoy the new Golden Silicone grommet.

    1. ASI Silicone grommet are amazing! wazwuz making it happen.

      I highly recommend this item for anyone using myyoungshin, or other K levers compataple with ASI grommet. the grommet as a very smooth feeling with even tension on all sides. I us both 40-50 tension grommets, and for me a stuck with the 50 and a oversized core making tension 55. id say 40 is a good choice if you're coming over from crown levers with the stock grommet. on Aug 19th 2019

    2. Not hard enough

      Get a red instead. Otherwise, if you like a lighter tension due to preference, ASI is the way to go. on Jul 19th 2019

    3. Excellent

      I had put a Crown 309 in my Korean stick because the Myeongshin Fanta was just too gummy for me. However, the Crown 309 is less solid -- at least in my opinion -- on dead zones and diagonals. With this thing installed, all my issues with the Myeongshin go away and it clearly becomes the best Korean lever available. This actually has somewhat lower tension than the stock grommet that comes with the Crown 309. I've been playing a lot with Japanese levers and this feels only slightly tougher. No need to manhandle your stick (although you can, and it will take it). Definitely recommend these if you don't like the stock tension on the Myeongshin. on Apr 23rd 2019
