    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. Best grommet mod for Fanta

      The 45 A turquoise silicone from ASI is slightly softer than the default 45A rubber grommet of the Myoungshin Fanta 2019. It feels better overall though. I have the ASI 50A blue grommet, ASI 45A turquoise and the default Myounshin 45A rubber. The ASI 45A definitely feels smoother to me, the return to neutral might not be as fast as 50A but the ease of motion makes up for it. I don't get back pain as well from it from a pre-existing exercise injury. Definitely recommend these! Get the grommets in different tensions to test your preferences. on Sep 1st 2019
